My Hand: A 7 7 8 9 4 6
Do one of the 7's cancell out? making my playing hand A 4 6 7 8 ???
Im fairly sure they do just making sure?
As posted before the 7s rather brick than cancel themselves out.
Your hand will be 8764A as you said but there is another point:
A,7,7 as a starting hand is not very good.
A,7,7 is worse than A,7,K
though it looks better.
Play with starting hands like A,x,8 as worst starting as a beginner.
I usally start with 7 low in early position.
Starting hands late position: A,2,3-8/2,3,4-8/3,4,5-8/4,5,6-8/5,6,7-8/6,7,8.
(this is rather tight but works well for me)
