It doesn't matter whether you win big pots with AA/KK or not. In online play, AAwon 12 bb per average every time a winning player got dealt
It. KK was like 9bb/ hand. That's like 18 bb/100 hands; that's more than anyone was winning online.
So one way to look at it is that your profits are most of what you win with AA and KK; your winnings with some AA and KK, and every other hand you play are just paying for your blind losses.
Don't get seduced by the allure of the big pot; for every time you flop 2 pair with 85s and stack an overpair, there are 49 times you don't. AA and KK don't have those built in costs; they are just steady, consistent winners.
