Today I'm gonna talk about my favourite hand in poker 9-5. This hand have too much potential to catch something in the flop, so my strategy to play this hand is :
Always raise befor the flop : 1- if the flop comes between A and T it's verry good, for exemple 8-7-6 make a straight, or 4-5-8 make a small middle pair but I bet the flop because I already raise befor the flop and the probability that my opponent have an 8 is very small, if the flop comes 2-3-6 I bet because I have a straight draw... so all cards between A and T gives me a nice play, than I can make a continuation bet without carring to much. exept if doublet comes like 2-2-8, but even in this case I make a continuation bet because almost the only way to lose is if my opponent have an 8 or a big pair,
2- if the flop bring 2 pictures or more, in this case I chek raise traying to show that I have a big hand like a set or too big pairs.
as a conclusion it's always very important to know how to play a hands with potential, because this is the only way to be a good player. We can not all the time wait for AA ok KK or AK to play! Agressive play is very important to have a big wins either in cach game or in tournements.
Having favorite poker hands actually has many negatives. The fact that you are being forced to play cards just because they are your favorite makes no sense, as you can easily lose money by losing your hand. Having a favorite hand also obscures your judgment; As soon as you get your favorite poker hands, you want to play them; no matter what the condition on the table. This greatly damages your game and can make you lose a lot of money.
I in particular have no favorite poker hand. I think any hand is good if you can play it. that includes. your pocision, read the cards of your rivals, your stack, if you have aggressive or very passive players. the amount with which another player opens the game and if you are willing to defend your cards and also know how to retire on time. Any hand can become a strong hand if we can play them.
I used to love JTs the most, but now itís less likely my favorite these days. Iíve learned that itís not as strong as I once thought. AA is a hand I love seeing show up, and despite the fact that itís not invincible I seem to have decent luck with it.
9-5,,,, j-2 is good also,you can get a low pair or a high pair.
Problem with hands like these is that thereís not many situations in which a low pair can win, I often have to fold if someone bets because theyíre most likely ahead of me if they do that. Itís even worse in a multiway pot which has more chances of a higher pair getting hit.
for me there are no favorite hands in poker but if I have to choose a non-premium hand, it would be Q8 that brought me into a tournament, great satisfactions allowing me to accumulate a large stack of chips in one hand and then win the tournament, but they were circumstances at that time, usually I fold that hand only that every time I see it reminds me that thanks to a hand with Q8 I could win a tournament in which I considered eliminated
