Once upon a time I ask what the AVERAGE winning hand is. Not a very exciting question, granted, but the answer probably works out to be something greater than a single pair. It seems likely that many/most folks think a single pair will be good, and the bigger that single pair is the better it is, but if the average winning hand is greater than a single pair, then even aces get cracked. Gee golly, jumping Jehoshaphat's, Aces do get cracked! Wow, the average hand must be better than a single pair.
So, knowing that, and knowing that the bell curve will still include a lot of Ace high hands in the main sequence, but that dead average is better than a pair of Q's (if all the cards are seen), well, we all got some thinking to do.
The power of the big pair gets cut short if the turn is seen. This is the logic behind the humongous bets by either good players frustrated with bad beats or bad players wanting it all. Once you decide on a fancy play, leaving any room at all for a villain to maneuver, you need to understand that not all fancy plays work as expected.
All this explaining could have just been said 'UL".
But I'm prepping for the drunkathon and am just about to hit the starting gates.
