Aces Up Poker Strategy

Aces Up is simply the name of a type of poker hand. It does not carry any particular relevance. We may feel left out of a poker conversation if we are not familiar with this fundamental piece of terminology.

Since Aces Up only describes one of the two pairs involved, further clarification may be required. If two players hold Aces Up, it will be necessary to establish the winner by referring to the rank of the second pair.
