Top 10 Starting Hands to Call Shoves in Sngs/MTT?
Obviously AA and KK are the top 2 hands. But when you talk about calling all ins or just reshoving, im somewhat confused at what the top 10 hands are.
This is what i thought it was
Would these be the top 10 hands to call all ins with? The thing is i saw this list somewhere where it was like this. But then when i go through top 10 cash game hands... you see hands like AQs ranked higher than AKo... which makes no sense. Then i seen some articles where they have the top 10 hands in holdem... they actually have KJs as a top 10 hand. Whats confusing is Phil Hellmuth mentions the top 10 hands in holdem are AA, KK, QQ, AKs, JJ, 10s, 9s, 8s, AQs, 7s. Im confused at this b/c why would he not have AKo ranked as a top 10 hand and have AQs there?
Are these top 10 hand rankings
different for sng, tournament and cash game which is why its like this? For example when i go on pokerlistings, it shows the top 10 hands as
AK (off suit)
I had a book called no limit holdem theory and practice and there was something at the end of the book where it showed the top hands with certain percentage such as aa, kk, and it goes from best hand to worst hand. I wanted to know if there is an exact chart for calling all ins. Such as calling an all in with JJ is better than AKo or whatnot. Because the way im reading some things, some charts have AQs ranked higher than AKo which makes no sense b/c if someone shoves, obviously you rather have AKo then AQs.
Another thing i wanted to know is, is having QQ always better than AKs when someone shoves? QQ is great bc if they have a pair, most likely its smaller than your qq so you going to be 4 to 1 favorite. If they have ak, you are 56-44 favorite but its close to a flip. But if they have like A10, you are 70/30 favorite. If you have AKs, the only hand where you are in absolute terrible shape is AA. Even if they have KK... you have 30 percent equity. But if they have a pair... then you are flipping. If they have Ax... you are going to be a 3 to 1 favorite.
I always considered AKs to be the 3rd best hand but apparently im wrong in this and its queens? Thing is when you get it all in with queens... most of the time it seems like you are up again aa or kk or the most obvious hand which is AK. Then those other times they have jj or 1010 where you dominate them.
