knowing your hand value
There comes a time now and then when you realize your opponents are playing the game where shitty hands is a commodity people are always figuring that middle pair could at least be good and are calling with 10 percent of their stack for whatever reason constantly . fish that get themselves involved in hands where the price is questionable and the risk is way above average and the hands are small are not going to edge the long run with this non materialistic mentality.
Pros usually only get involved in pots that are whereof course I'm talking live games because the cards are more realistic don't get me wrong this is great tournament play busting small pots is useful but live cash games its best to stay away from non material hands like J4 K7 etc this is 9 handed theory ofc 5 handed that would be very standard but you can't really walk into any casino and play a 5 handed private game which is why this is why in talking where the money is at.
Of course knowing the value of the overall hand statistics is important ak should be folded preflop if your risking most of your bankroll you want to see the flop 4 handed at the most because top pair will take it most of the time with a ample raise ofc when I created this thread my main purpose was to explain why people should be folding big hands such as aq aj pocket 9s preflop of unless you're getting equity meaning people are not irrationally betting at the time good and bad hands come and go equally and that's the mentality one should have its not like OMG I have ACES put it in while I can this is once in a lifetime no a hand is no different from any other hand which is why the value is always 0 in the long run.
