fav hands

Postby Whorem1978 » Fri Mar 04, 2005 7:48 am

Saying A-A is a little obvious. I like Jdawg's comment about K-Q, especially suited. It's one of Phil Hellmuth's favorite hands, and he should know, though TJ Cloutier doesn't think much of it. I've had great success with it as long as an ace doesn't hit the board.

The hand I find myself winning with a lot, which surprises me somewhat since most people don't recommend playing it, is Q-10 suited. It has 50% more straight possibilities than K-10, and the hand seems to catch people by surprise. It may be just a 20 Rule hand, but it has been the 20 Rule hand that's been the most effective for me.

Obvious maybe. But he asked for a favorite hand. That's the one that I like to see. I won't believe you if you say that you'd rather be dealt Q10 suited than AA. I'll take my chances against your Q10 every time :D

But if he's asking for a favorite obscure hand....for some reason I've made alot of hands with J8 suited or unsuited. I don't play it every time, but when I'm in a blind with it, I've been amazed how many times it has hit for me.

I get burned with AA

Postby Mystery36 » Sat Mar 05, 2005 5:06 pm

I will take big slick suited.Ive been beat with AA ^ out of the last 7 times by some small pair catching trips on the flop.It has been the last hand I have seen in tourneys for the past 4 days.The worst was at poker host 3 nights ago.I was in 3rd with 40 people left and went all in with the famous AA and lost half my stack.Caught it again 4 hands later all in again and was knocked out by 88.

My fav's

Postby Doccujjoinds » Wed Mar 23, 2005 7:06 am

I really like Q9...for some reason really win with that hand on Noble.

But, I also LOVE Jacks...they're my heroes.

Worst draw...wide ocean 2/9...can never get those puppies to be nice to me. When I do fold, they're on the flop...go figure. My psychic abilities suck!

I don't know about you guys, but I like 77, 88, 99, 10 10. I've told a few people about some hands I played with 88 and their immediate reaction is bascially NOOOOO, that always looses.

Seems to work for me.

Pocket ducks, suited connectors, or something like 7 5 suited. I have fun playing these limp-in hands, especially on the button.

I like to start of obcourse with rokets or big slick or the wayne grzky,

I also like getting suited connectors, because when you play high stakes limits like me and most of the players there only play high starting hands, this is the way I get an edge on my oponent by playing almost every suited connector I get, sometimes suited anything in my case. 8) :d :d
