Personally I never complain about AA, even when I'm losing with it, It's the best starting hand you can have. One win doesn't really prove much, but thanks for posting the positive side of the equation, we see the bad beats with aces WAY too often lol.

The only problem with AA is that it comitts you to action and any two cards can beat it! Think my record is 6 in a row (losing with) and that was all in one sitting! But the flip side is, as said, it is the best starting hand if not the best finishing!!! Folding post flop is so hard to do....

What most do is shove, all the time. You can't do that. There are times when shoving works but there are times when a 4x raise is the better play. That is what some of the players still don't understand.

my aces hold up alot of the time but it seems they are cracked in crucial spots deep in a tourney or when someones pushed all in in front of me. Maybe i remember them more like people say but am i the only one whos picked up aces 9 handed and the whole table has folded this happens alot mostly cash games on several skins not just pokerstars and imo its to even the statistics up.
