Somebody said that with AA you can win small (raise big preflop I think) or lose big (wait for cards to come and improve villain).
Where am I mistaking?
You want to get the max value from your hand, not the minimum just to protect your hand.... you want to charge him as much as you think villain will pay with his worst hands and draws.. most draws wont get there.
In this hand hero accomplished getting the money in with the best hand and got paid by a draw, this time villain got there, but long run its more money for us.
Trying to make worst hands and draws fold by overbetting, its a mistake IMO.
