Depends on the stakes you're playing and the style of the people you're playing against. Personally if there are a lot of people in the pot then give a nice raise 4-5 X BB. If it's heads up a weaker bet to sucker the person in.

The key is to try and maximize the amount of money you can make with the least risk. I like AA either with 1 or 2 other people in the pot...if they are betting aggressive flat calling...if they are showing weakness a little bet to get a call. However, if there are draws make it expensive to see.

Depends - Always bet at least 3 times BB and sometimes more. If you limp in and try to catch someone - you might get caught. What you want is someone to reraise at the start and just keep reraising them.

I agree......don't sit with A's figuring they are a sure winner......lost a lot of hands that way...be aggressive....raise the pot more each bet !
Don't argue with me...

AA is good for 2 things in a cash game- winning a small pot, or losing a big one. If you want to play it you've got to be aggressive, because though it's a great starting hand, very few flops actually leave your hand in the best shape. It's easily vulnerable to a hand like J/10 or even a 5/6 with the right flop, so you've got to get it while you can and remember it's better to make 5 or 10 bucks on a hand than it is to lost 50 or more when it gets drawn out on.
If I ask nicely would you just fold for me and make this easy on yourself?

i completely agree with mortenron here. slowplaying the best starting hand in poker can only give your opponents more chances to flop draws or even hit straights and flushes.

You gotta play aggressively. In a cash game, do the standard raise at the table. If the standard raise is really small though, like 3-4x BB, you can raise it up a little higher, esp if there are more people in the pot. On the flop, lead out against just about any board, unless it's like 567 all spades, and you have 2 red As. One thing to keep in mind is this, AA is just a pair. Just a pair!! A pair is one of the weakest hands in hold 'em. If your opponent is playing like he can beat just a pair, go calculate your pot odds and determine if you can continue. Never, ever slowplay AA preflop when you're out of position. Only time you do this is for the limp-reraise. If it's preflop and it's heads-up against 1 opponent AND your opponent is aggressive AND you have position, then maybe slowplaying is okay. Honestly, I haven't gotten AA enough times in my life to know how to play them effectively. Ask me how to play 6s7s and I'll tell you. :)

All in pre-flop baby!!! Cause more often than not if you slow play; you get out drawn. You can also get outdrawn with 1 caller of course. But usually AA takes it 1 on1.
