    aces get busted again

    Okay so I am playing on a cash table 2-4 cent no limit and I am in UTG 3 and get dealt aces. I am thinking sweet heres comes some change, well wouldn't ya know it I lose. Heres how it goes down, I raise preflop to 16 cents, it folds to small blind who 3 bets me to 50 cents. I have about 2.40 so I 4 bet him all in and to my surprise he calls. Flips jacks, first card on the flop is guess what a jack. This is the second time today I lost with aces on a 2-4 cent table. I get aces and raise pre to 14 cents. Two callers, flop comes 6 2 Q. 1st player checks 2nd bets 4 cents, I raise to 54 cents, 1st player folds and 2nd calls. Next card is a 3..BTW all different suits until the turn, he bets out 4 cents again I raise this time to 95 cents and without hesitation he calls. At this point I'm thinking what the hell is wrong with this guy. The last card is a 5 I have about 34 cents left and he checks so I push the rest in and he flips over 65. Anywho that has been my adventful day and can't wait till tomoroow. Goodnight all and good luck on the felts!

    I understand the frustration, but keep in mind that it was 2c/4c. If you get a good bankroll, the play gets better the higher stakes you get.

    Yeah - that's very frustrating, but it's the life for those of us living at the bottom of the stakes stacks, eh? Any two cards is good enough for an all-in, so there's no way to protect a good hand.

    The microstakes are brutal, its hard, in my opinion, to have a true BRM plan, because there are so many people that go, "Its just pennies, who cares?" Those of us that try to take it seriously, and build up, have a lot harder time consistently moving up at that level, not because we are playing hands wrong, but because of the number of people that just don't care.

    If this is played on Pokerstars this is normal. AA almost never wins on Pokerstars, it annoys me so much.

    It has nothing to do with the site itself, and everything to do with how people view the game. Whether you play on pokerstars, full tilt, carbon, lock, or even at a casino, it has a lot to do with the other players' styles, and how they view your style. And even then, AA is not guaranteed to win every time. It gives you the best percentage preflop, but it isn't guaranteed.

    "With aces, you will either win a little pot or lose a big one" Doyle Brunson. Aces main problem? NO ONE WANTS TO FOLD THEM. If your post flop action gets called, you got to read that board and wonder what they have. If you raised big pre flop, it really does say "I got a real big hand!", so if the flop does not have big cards....get it? Plus, at 2/4, you would be amazed at what people call preflop with, becasue they dont think "pot odds" they think "it's only xx cents". Sad, but there it is. Would you call a big rasie with small suited connectors and chase a gut shot in a 2/4 DOLLAR game? how about 20/40? See, pennies are pennies, but Dollars are a lot more! You are much less likely to find a player who will chase a long shot for 100's of dollars, and if they are the type, relax, Thats why we play, to find rich dummies looking to pay dearly so they can go to the office the next day and talk about that "heroic call in the face of clear and present danger"; They like to brag about the 300 they won, and never mention the 1000's they lost just to get there!
