AK and AQ will definitely call. TT will raise but nothing else will that hasn\'t raised already in my opinion. I can\'t see AK raising here but sometimes these players don\'t realize what their hand is worth. Assuming the guy isn\'t totally out of control I think bet and fold to a raise is the play. check/call might be better if he will bluff with small pocket pairs or Ax.

What does the Aces never lose promotion mean? I\'m guessing you get some sort of bonus if you lose with Aces?

Yeah, 1/2 - 2/4, you get $25. I think you get more as you go up in limits.



This swings it to a check/call for sure. Such a great promotion.

Agree, w/the promo, check/call, this is a critical detail.

I thought that would be best, but I can\'t fold to the raise \'cuz AA never loses wed-sat at wpx. I guess I thought the river kinda sucked, since any T wins and I think alot of 2 pair hands like KJ, KQ that may have played the flop and turn the same came in on the river. So, since I can\'t fold to the river raise, does this make it more of a C/C?
