I know that a starting hand in hold em' is better the more your percentage of winning is, but I was figuring that AK is a better starting hand to have only because I've won more with it, and there are more outs to hit than AA. With AA you only got two other Aces and with AK you have 6 possible matches. With only 52 cards in a standard deck, hitting an A or K seems more probable than getting one of those other two Aces in a AA starting hand. AA is a good starting hand but it gives you a false sense that you will win the hand, and some people slow play it, and others get straights, flushes, and other hands that beat up on AA. When I've had AA in the past I've lost more times than when I have AK, why is that? Take care y'all, cya at the tables.
