That is a very gooe starting hand but I prefer the 34os because it is connected and is slightly better than the 42os.  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I'd rather have the cards be suited... For the flush possibilities if the straight doesn't pull through.

Or, you might just manage to get the Straight Flush

Wouldnt that be nice?

I'm not a big fan of those hands personally.  My favourite hand (other than the obvious ones like AA and KK) would have to be Q9 suited.  Somehow, that hand always seems to work out for me

I'm always a sucker for suited connectors (high or low) but I don't seem to win much with them

42o and 43o are very specialized hands that you should only use when you have the chance call my all in.  :p

The only way I will play low cards is if they are suited connectors. These hands can pay really big if they hit.

my favorite hand is QK suited I will play that hand very agressively all the time unless an ace comes on the board.

Fav starting hand

Postby Ouseetteled » Mon Nov 07, 2005 9:30 pm

Q 7 suited is my fav hand; I don't know why.  I just seem to win with that hand alot.  I think it comes along with confidence when playing that hand.  I feel more comfortable playing Q 7 than AK  to be honest.

My favourite hand to play is QQ I always seem to catch with that hand
my favorite bad hand to play is 10 5. I am not too fond of aces it seems like I never catch with them or get beaten by two pairs.

Howdy Y'all -

I don't know where you guys come up with these silly ideas:

The off-suits give you twice the opportunity to flush! Good luck comedians!

Anyone that thinks that 24 offsuit, 34, 10 5 are good hands doesn't play holdem for anything more than play money. If you like these hands, come to my table anytime you wish, I am either deviljoe or JoeDevil wherever I play. You will find me playing 1/2 NL. Join me...please.

BTW, suited cards do not make a chitty hand any more attractive. You ever heard the saying "you can't polish a turd"?  Say you are playing limit holdem and you limp in with 24s. You flop the flush. You think you are going to scare anybody away that holding the AKQ or J of spades? Probably not. It handicaps you more than it helps. How do you play it when the 4th spade comes? I hope the lightbulb just went off  :wink:
