i agree that most times suited connectors can get you into trouble, but hands like 910 suited always seem to come out on top for me and seem to hit for me very often

If you pay close attention to when during the game the pros play suited connectors, it's usually short handed (6 or less) or in late postition (on the button or 2nd last position. They usually don't play anything below J10s out of position shorthanded, and nothing lower than AKs in early position at a full table, unless of course they're a super-agressive style player.

I cant agree more unless they are high cards

Suited connectors are decent starting hands but if you dont get a real good portion on the flop, you have to fold them.  I find they typically hit about 25% of the time so be careful playing them and know when to lay it down.

i agree that suited connectors should only be played if you're late in betting position and costs nothing more than the bb.  you have to be careful with flush draws though if your connectors aren't high cards.

I love to play the suited connectors as well.  Preferrable in late position, but if I can get my chips in for realatively cheap then that's all the better.  They do seem to hit more often then the higher AK, AQ, etc etc.

I'm ok :lol:

I see so many people play low card suited connectors and get hurt most of the time.  The amount of outs increase so much with higher suited connectors that I fold any that do not include a picture.  At least that way pairing up is still a viable hand.

I wouldn't play em unless i'm in the blind or in dealer position.Basically this is a game of pairs.unless you have some over cards u will lose. good hands,flushes,straights etc don't come as often as u think.High cards are your best option for winning.

I play suited connectors as well. I will at least see the flop before I proceed.
