I like hands like 10 9 or 9 8 or J 10 to start with.   They have lots of drawing possibilities. Maybe I like those hands because the Paint cards (Other than Queens) Hate me

I find that middle pocket pairs see to pull it off majority of the time and on that 77/ 88 has to be in top set

AA for sure

Every good player knows AA is the best starting hand u have almost 80 % preflop of winning considering the other person doesn't have KK or QQ then ur 60 40. Any connected and suited hand is also good with 4 to 1 chance of winning compared to K 10 which is 23 to 1.

My problem is that I don't know whether to call or fold when I have a pair of 2's or any other low card. I have started venturing out and being a little more bold by calling on a pocket pair of 7s or above. Is this the proper way to play?

My favourite starting hand is also my namestake, HeaterHand ! there was a stretch of home games i played with my buddies where this hand would end up being the winner everytime. It's K10os and I just love it for some reason. Although the magic has worn off a bit It still holds a special place for me whenever im playing a poker game.

usually i dont play 78 or 56... but when most of the table is raising... i like to stay in with it because lotsa of the over cards are alreayd in play i have a better chance of hitting mine. :)
