    I know the correct play is to hold just AAA, but every time I have an AAA 2,3 or 4 dealt, I feel like I should hold that kicker especially playing 10 play. Thoughts?

    I am just learning this game so I'm sure someone can chime in with a more mathematical reasoning, but it seems having two slots for the other Ace to pop up for a little less than half the payoff combined with the chance that one of the other kickers may still show up makes it the better play. 10 play vs. single play shouldn't make any difference.

    Yup, you want as many chances to get that Ace as possible. Until you get that 4th Ace, the kicker is worthless.

    As others have hinted at, more money will be coming your way longterm if you ditch the kicker. Now TDB on the other hand...the kicker is an easy hold. You could give that game a whirl. But that's also a variance mess.
