Yeah, um, first thing, cards 2-10 add up to 36 cards in a deck of 52, which leaves 16 cards of paint and aces. That's barely more than double. Secondly, I'd probably throw 10s in with the paint for value purposes which makes it 32 number cards and 20 cards of 10 and up, which is not even double. Don't know where you came up with "4 times as many" but I see where you're going with that. When posting advice on something like that, do your math BEFORE you throw out some stats.
I kind of agree with what you're trying to say, but say you play suited 87 and the flop was K64 rainbow, you bet and he shoves, will you call the all in on a gut shot? According to what has been said, villain always showed a pair. Which means, if he has a K, or pp of 88 or better, or flopped a set, you're drawing to 4 outs. That wouldn't be a very good call now would it? Playing any two cards preflop heads up is fine, especially connectors, because if you hit the flop pretty good, you're more than likely dominating the hand. But if they don't hit (at least don't hit very hard, such as making bottom pair with a crappy kicker), there's really nothing you can do but muck and try to get something next hand.
