Your preflop actions look fine. You have the second best starting hand in poker, so 4betting strongly is correct. The 3-5-6 rainbow flop is coordinated, but you worrying about hands like 2-4 and 4-7 is just silly. Think about it: would you call a 4-bet preflop with this kind of hand? Probably not unless you were super deepstacked (which you didn't mention, ...

Checking in the dark is a high level play to reestablish position on the flop. Like someone else already mentioned, most of the time this is done with drawing hands, as someone with vulnerable hands like AA/KK would most likely never make this move. It is essentially a way of giving away less information regarding your hand and how it relates to the flop. ...

Gaz makes a lot of good points. The goal with aces is to get all the money in preflop, but you should absolutely slow down and reevaluate postflop. Board texture, opponent types and tendencies, reads, stack sizes, etc. all come into play after the flop comes out and your opponent is betting and/or not folding to your bets. Don't get married to aces postflop; ...

The short answer is that this is just the nature of things when playing for play money. When you get pocket aces, you often can (and should) get all of your chips in pre-flop because most play money players simply don't care. If someone before you raises, you can usually just shove all in and get multiple callers. Long term, you will still make (a lot) ...

First of all if you can get someone to commit all of their chips pre flop when you hold Aces then you are doing well. You should be fist pumping at this stage as you are the favourite. If they suck out post flop then thats just varience you did the hard part getting all of your chips in pre which is +EV. You should always play the hand aggressively, but try ...

I think that pre-flop is pretty strange play by your opponents unless you guys are super deep. When you say you raised 3x because of the premium hand you should probably start re-thinking this tactic pre-flop. If you raise 3x with premium hand and 2x with hands that are worse this is pretty exploitable play. I would then say that depending on how deep you ...

The only options P1 has are to call, raise, or fold. P1 could only check if he had already matched the highest bet (which he hasn't, because of the raise). P2 then has to call the highest bet, raise it, or fold, for the same reasons. The fact that P4 folded has no impact on what options P1 and P2 have. Edit based on comment: The round (pre-flop, flop, ...

Interesting question. A good thought experiment perhaps. Firstly, something to consider is was he closing the action pre-flop when he called? This really isnt something you'll encounter very often, so i'd be inclined to give it almost no significance, until I could establish how my opponent was using it in their own unique way. Obviously, that's not going ...

People use to blind check when they don't want to show their weakness. they are sitting on a draw and are hoping to complete it. when they first see the flop and then check they are showing "weakness". so your info is, that he is setting up a trap or he has a draw. when they instantly checking you will never know if they probably completed their "draw". I ...

To make it simple, Bear in mind that, for those who called your raise in pre-flop, very likely they have an Ace on hand. So basically if there's no Aces on flop, I would raise or even go all-in, not to allow them to draw the chance of catching a pair of Ace. But if an Ace came out, I would definitely just check.
