Each and every one who competes in Texas Holdem knows that ace/king is one of the best opening hands. But, it's simply that, an opening hand. It is simply two cards of a seven-card formula. In nearly every situation, you want to come out guns blaring with Ace-King as your pocket cards. When the flop arrives, you must to analyze your cards and consider things completely before you just presume your overcards are best.

Like most other situations in texas hold'em, knowing your opponents will assisting you in gauging your position when you have Ace-King and observe a flop like 9-8-2. After you bet preflop and were called, you presume your opponent is also possessing great cards and the flop might have by-passed them as poorly as it missed you. Your assuming will frequently be right. Also, don't forget that many bad players wouldn't know good cards if they fall over them and might have called with Ace-x and paired the table.

If your opponent checks, you might check and observe a free card or lay a bet and try to pick the pot up right there. If they wager, you might raise to see if they are for real or fold. What you want to avoid is basically calling your competitor's wager to observe what the turn gives rise to. If any card instead of the Ace or King hits, you will not have any more info than you did after the flop. Let us say the turn results in a four and your opponent bets once more, what should you do? To call a bet on the flop you must believe your hand was the best, so you must truly believe it still is. So, you call a wager on the turn and one more on the river to figure out that your opponent has a hand of ten-eight and just a second pair following the flop. At that time, it dawns on you that a raise following the flop might have captured the pot right then.

Ace-King is a wonderful thing to find in your hole cards. Just be certain you participate in them wisely and they will bring you awesome cheerfulness at the poker table.
