Here's a little joke that cracks me up:

So, a guy walks up to me and says, "I'm a tepee. I'm a wigwam. I'm a tepee! I'm a wigwam!" I said to him, "Relax, man. You're two tents!"

Actually, I think there is a correct answer to this question.

I disagree, and I think this is results-oriented thinking.

OP didn't ask if the strategy is valid -- OP asked if shoving is the best play. The answer to that question has to be "no".

He... they... Sometimes I don't know who I'm talking to. :)

Thanks for the clarification. Since I didn't know his actual holding, I couldn't simulate OP's exact scenario. But now that you know about the Rule of 2/4 and PokerStove, you can do this yourself!

@Ivan: Pocket Aces will win more money in the long-run against more players than it will against fewer. Volatility will also be higher but we, as sufficiently-rolled poker players, should not be worried about volatility; only long-term winrate.

comment Classic Books for Texas Hold'Em
You want to know what the classic books are? Or do you want to know what the best books are? As the game is played by more and more people, the state of the art evolves, and the books that were once considered to be the Gold Standard may provide suboptimal advice for contemporary games.

comment Classic Books for Texas Hold'Em
IMO this book was terrible. Not for PH's attitude, but for his advice. He advocates a weak-tight style that limit's a players ability to win or to learn. I would stay away from this book.

The Small Stakes Holdem book was really more by Ed Miller than by David Sklansky. Although I'm sure Sklansky will assume all the credit, the book was written almost entirely by Miller.

comment Main differences between Limit and No Limit Hold'em
"A second raise probably means AA and you should get out." This is not nearly as universally true as it used to be.

@ktothez: No casinos I play at allow a one card show when there are live players.
