Suited Connectors

Postby Wrecertrecan » Sun Mar 05, 2006 7:07 am

Hey i see when i watch poker on television that alot of the pro's seem to play suited connectors often. I was just wondering if this is a good hand to usually play....

be careful when thinking of taking any tips from watching poker on tv most of the time you only get to see a very small percentage of the hands being played so dont get a true reflection of the game.

yeah...i think that tv is alot of deception.  They pretty much only show you the hands where there is actio0n or it is a big rivaly between two players and they are in the hand.  Suited Connectors can get you into alot of trouble if they arnt played right.  I almost never play them unless i am in late position and it is late in the game.  Early stages of a tourny i will just trow this hand away.

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 love all suited connectors, but I play loosely most of the time.  If someone in front of you bets a large amount, fold 'em.

Speaking for myself I love playing suited connectors. I would take suited connectors. You get more outs better draws and against bigger pairs  you'll sure get paid off but you have to make sure there is not a bigger flush or bigger straight that can get you

910 suited does always seem to be a winner for me as well, but i love all suited connectors and usually play most of them besides 23 suited and it works out for me, other hands like 57 suited, 86s, 97 suited i play as well

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.
