This is because with a pair of kings, an overcard -the ace -can come on the flop, while no overcards can come to a pair of aces. The First Two Cards: Early Position 23 Finally, ifno one has yet called, raise approximately one-third of the time with a hand like as long as the game is typical or tough.

Thus with marginal hands it may be worth raising if you think it will take that raise to get the button to fold. Sometimes you can raise with some weaker hands in late position. This opportunity arises when you are against one or two callers who play poorly and did not enter the pot from the early positions (and thus probably have weak hands). If you have a playable hand that would prefer to play against a small number of opponents, and you believe that your raise will fold everyone out behind you, then you should raise.
