The most over-played hands

Postby Ouls1982 » Sat Aug 05, 2006 4:48 pm

There are two hands i have in mind that people overplay all too often.  The first being queen jack.  In an early position its not a bad idea to fold this hand.  I would never play this hand with someone who has raised preflop regardless of my position.  The hand can be beat by almost any raised hand.  Another overplayed hand is king 10.  I play this hand when i get it, unless i am raised out of position, but i am cautious when betting and calling bets on the flop.

I agreewith bigboy4life. A Q an A J can be easily dominated by A K, AA KK or  
QQ. Another hand people don't realize which is not so good is JJ. Maybe JJ is the hand which I most used to lose.

The most over-played hands

Postby Boacred » Sun Aug 27, 2006 6:50 pm

I believe the most overplayed hand is AK .  Everyone seems to think this is an unbeatable hand.  I don't know how many times I have seen people go All-In with this hand and get beat by a small pocket pair.  In my opinion not a good hand to go All-In with at any time pre-flop....

I agree AK is the most overplayed.  AK has everything beat except for a pocket pair when that is usually a 50/50 coin flip.  Exceptions are AA or KK where you are a huge underdog.  AK is obviously a good hand to push with when you a short stacked but you also have to know when to let this one go especially when you dont hit the flop.

My opinion on the most overplayed hand is JJ,I always see these get beat,most people say the best way to play these are to go all in pre flop or else you get beaten out of them

I have to go with big slick....Its a nice hand to start with but from early position its just a limper....cvuz if it misses then its nothing but 2 high cards and even a pair of two's has it dominated, but so many players will bet it like they are leading the hand and pray for a miracle card or hope they bluf the others into a laydown

Hmm I think people over play A-rag. I see people bust out when they go all in when they are dominated by an Ace with a good kicker.

small pockets

Postby Yourne » Sat Sep 30, 2006 6:28 pm

what is your opinion on small pockets,, I mean they are excellent if you hit, cuz no one is excpecting it, but where do you draw the line on calling preflop.. like 4 or 5 times the big, or if there is 4 or more people in the hand. just curious.. tell me what you all think.

i think the most over played hands are two pair.  i see it too often...a guy catches second pair on turn or river and believe he has the hand dominated while they're calling an all in bet.

in early position i fold everything it isnt good to come into the pot for a raise cuz usually the blinds will fold and then ur first to act after the flop adn that is no good
