AA is the best STARTING hand in poker.
Suited connectors are good STARTING hands in poker
Two paint cards are good STARTING hands in poker.
holdem, there are 7 cards in play for you. You have only 2 of them preflop. They are called STARTING hands for a reason.
AcAd are very nice to see preflop, if the table flops 9h2hkh and turns 5h, they are not longer a great hand, and you will most likley loose with them. If the river is a heart as well, the BEST you can hope for is a split.
JJ is a hand I hate, but there are some that really like them, but if the table shows even one A K or Q, you are most likey going to loose the hand.
Dont get married to your starting (hole) cards. Get the big picture
(note to mods: this is in General as opposed to starting poker because most players do not consider themselves beginners)
