You need to know your oponents. Try and find a good raise amount that will only get legit callers and not boneheads with K 6 or somethin and then catch stuff.

The more i watch hands of poker, i find that having an Ace is underrated. I had KQ suited and went all in pre-flop (only had like 500 chips left). Chip leader called with Ace 2 off. Nothing on the board contributes to either of us, so he wins with ace high. It's very strong to hold an ace, even at a large table.

Acutally, having an Ace is not that underrated esp with newbs. A lot of them, will see an Ace with any card and go for it.

But we should know that A and any low card is worse than say K Q.
The fact is, the Ace can beat ur cards, when there's no pairs or hit the Ace. But then, it evens out that either of ur cards when paired can beat his low card pair. Plus of course, you have a chance of getting the straight.

And I say KQs is pretty good, just go by the hand strength table. It's more like a win alot of or lose a lot type of hand. Same with any other strength by suited hands. Cuz chance of getting flush is not that high, but ppl who get high pairs get lured in and bet a lot.

I usually find that it all depends on previous hands at a table.For example if you've been betting only  cards that are strong(high pairs,A-face,etc.)and the table notices then you will only get legitimate hand calling an A-J raise.If you've been limpin' in with anything then the table may not respect any raise you offer .

Also you have to be aware of how others at the table are playing their cards.Basically you have to assess your opponemts and decide ,are thay playing all thier junk tryin to get lucky or do they really have good hands when they risk thier money.

Personnally i only like A-J when the highest card in the community is a J even then that hand scares me and usually makes me wish I had folded before I committed any money.
