This means either you're the unluckiest person alive, or you're not playing them right.
I'm serious, there really isn't any room for opinion if we're talking about the best
starting hand. Maybe there's some room for discussion in Omaha about whether AAKK is better than AAKQ or AKQJ double suited or vice versa. But on hold 'em? AA is the best starting hand - fact.
You can argue about your favourite
starting hand, but it's pretty much cut and dried as to which one is the best.
