Bullets - Hold'em Starting Hand

'Bullets' is another name for the Texas Hold'em starting hand AA. The hand is also known as American Airlines, Aces and Pocket Rockets. AA is the strongest possible starting hand available pre flop and a hand that most players love to take a look down to see. The odds of getting dealt the hand is 220/1, meaning that you should be dealt them once every 220 hands.

It is also the hand that represents the greatest problems post flop. As strong a hand as it is pre flop, it is only a pair and is easily beaten once the board is dealt (assuming it doesn't improve). There are limited ways in which the hand can improve once the board is out - either by hitting one of the last remaining two aces or making a straight or flush.
