Hope all is going well and glad to meet you. Having learned poker playing limit cash games and staying with Lee Jones starting hand chart; suited starting hands are heavy on the chart but small suited hands have their place based on position is just one aspect. Even though, it only adds a small % to the starting hands pre-flop. Not playing any hand in a vacuum allows understanding how to play suited hands, based on opponents, their position, and my position. Floating position to get a free card, not just calling and hoping to hit, semi-bluffing, independently these are all good tools but combine them when a person will get combination draws then applying these tools. Otherwise, trying to catch, playing one pair, can become a weak play in the long run as an example. Knowing how to play them properly becomes vital for adding image at the table because of how it is applied differently than that of my opponents.
Patience, discipline is keys to be successful and not always pushing draws in a vacuum. 10,000 situations of having 9 flush draw outs on the flop, 47 unseen cards, 3 community cards, 2 hole cards, the 5 cards seen is the only empirical information, 9 into 47 is a little over 5-1 from this I need 5-1 to see the flop or I can fudge and see some at 4-1. Whether I am seeing both cards, seeing the turn and river independently, or pushing on the flop; even just seeing the turn and not the river; I am 20% for 10,000 situations of making a flush draw. I lose 8,000 busted flush draws, I store this information mentally to trigger my mindset not to overvalue situations because this is just discrete theory that I follow as an example, but also to search for the best spot if I decide to push the flop as another example. However, each hand can produce a flush roughly 36% of the time in a vacuum because of the 4 and 2 rule and the odds of the game as an example.
Now my opponents always observe the 4 and 2 rule which is correct but mentally 47, 46 unseen cards the odds are truer, for the long run, for my game as an example; I accept poker is a journey and mentally I am never tilting over my outcomes whether flush draws or any situation because of this understanding. I am not looking to go all in pre-flop with suited hands, even AK suited, I still play unsuited connectors, and they have their time and place to play just like all starting hands. I play my flush and straight draws in the same manner as set mining for a flop.
