I am aware that a lot of us have very different styles of play when it comes to NLHE. These styles dictate what hands we play and how we play them. Lets assume for the sake of argument that you have position maybe one or two seats off the button. What are your gauranteed starters and how do you play them? Mine are as follows:
Raise with them about 4 times the big blind.
Same as AA, 4 times the BB
Same as above about 4 times the BB
Usually a bet 3 times the BB, sometimes limping in then calling a raise before the flop or getting a flop for the price of the blinds
JJ, 10-10, 9-9, 8-8, 7-7, 6-6, 5-5, 4-4, 3-3, 2-2, and middle to high suited connectors:
I will generally limp in with these hands cautiously. Obviously less fear with Jacks through 8's hoping to improve any of these hands on the flop or for no overcards to fall. All of the middle to low pairs have value, but also increase in risk the lower they are, so they are played accordingly. Sometimes with the lower end of the pairs, representing a big hand ill try to take down a pot so I am not bluffing
with complete trash.
Anyway, I'm curious how some of you guys play starting hands, bet them, and how your list differs from mine.
