I was in a hand in a freeroll tournament that shows the danger of slowplaying AA. Start off tournament so not many reads everybody has around 1500chips i am in BB get 57off and i check flop 46Q i check and no bet turn 8 i bet pot 100 all 4 others call river 2 i bet 300 next call and the next one call then next one goes allin i call and win the hand course he shows AA Afterwords he calls me a fish but actually i checked untill i had made the hand and he would have gotten me to fold with a raise off 3-4 blinds preflop.

Yeap, he was totally wrong, principally when don think the value his hand has. Some bad players thinks AA is unvincible

It just shows what Mike Caro calls FPS (fancy play syndome). Slow play can and will get you into alot of trouble. Its better to go into a hand heads-up with few limpers with hands like that. Its better to eliminate any drawing hands preflop. Even in a limit game AA can be a bad hand with flops like 894 most players in online poker will enter an inexpensive pot with 67 suited or 10J and if they hit a good draw on the flop w/4 or 5 limpers why not pay to see if they can hit thier draw on the turn before the cost of a bet goes up.

There's slowplay and there's silly play. The guy that had those Aces should have folded on the turn to your 300 bet. WAY too early to slowplay Aces, but since he did he shold have known there was a HUGE chance the BB had the straight with a 300 chip bet on turn. And even more so on the river with the two. The LEAST he should have expected that you had was 2 pair, which still busts his aces. Ah well...if he can't play the cards right, well thats his loss and your win. Nh :)

On average I win a lot more slowplaying, then I lose, but I need better hand than AA before I slowplay, if I got Pocket rockets In raise of course, but if the flop shows an ace, and no obvious str8 flush drawcard I probably would slowplay, depending on where at the table I sit. Am I on the button and someone bet, I`ll only call.

I think AA should be played hard all the time, no slow playing. Allin preflop or a good raise preflop then allin. Your gonna go allin anyway so why wait unless you flop nuts. 300 chips raises are not big enough for some fish, make sure the raise is enough so that only good hands call then the chance of getting donked is reduced. There is nothing u can do against players that call any raise and get lucky but most of the time if you play hard with AA u will win. GL at the tables. Slick

I have mentioned a couple of times in other posts how I disagree with trying to slow play top pairs for the simple reason that AA is only the nuts preflop - it cannot be beaten if they are the only cards you can use. What people fail to realise is that they are not bullet proof, and you need to get as many people out of the hand as possible.

As long as you can lay it down when it's likely your beaten, thats fine IMO.
