comment When to fold AA pre-flop?
A hand with 100% chances of winning. Like nuts flush. Obviously, not pre-flop, that's why I would consider folding AA (depending on the amounts involved).

comment When to fold AA pre-flop?
When I say: "the table where I start is not the table where I am playing" I do not mean I change tables; I mean that I started with a small buy-in, got lucky and had a looot of money in front on me (unexpected, not my level). So, I am in the same table, but it is effectively a different table for me. So the argument from Cory ("I should not sit in the game") does not apply here. Or maybe yes: maybe I should stop playing and leave the table. Or maybe I should just tighten my game and not call all-in preflop with a pair of aces, which is my question all along.

Great Cory, that last part is roughly what I was thinking.

And besides: I am perfectly willing to call 1 million times the big blind. But only when I have the nuts. Which is not the case with AA pre-flop.

I see your point. The fact is that maybe I have that huge amount of money by chance: the table where I am playing is not the table where I started (I got very lucky early in the game).

Well, my question states clearly: would you fold based on how much you have to call?, so I guess it is a bankroll/risk management question.

No matter the amounts involved? Would you want to risk 1000 times the big blind? 10000 times? 1 million times? Is there a limit? You have not yet won: you are just very much ahead.

comment Effect of number of players in the probability distribution of poker hands
I see you understand my question. I am indeed talking about pure probability, not about "psicology-influenced" probability (which, as you correctly explain, is indeed affected by countless factors). But I am still not convinced: to compute the probabilities of me having a certain hand, I must take into account that some cards are not on the deck, but belong to a player. I do not know which cards have been dealt, but I know that the number of available cards on the deck is directly affected by the number of players on the table. Surely that must have an effect on the mathematical computations?
