Ace rag early, I used to try to limp in with it....cost me a lot to finally learn the wisdom of folding it lmao!! I generally won't even play it middle to late position. I may not be winning more, but I'm definately losing less!
fold this all day. Even though its soooooted, i think you only have something like a 4% chance to hit a flush with soooted cards. (Im not sure on that though) So you have to see past the suits and realise it is just ace rag
You have super aggressive players and it's an easy fold in early position. Get a tight shorthanded table and there is potential to make a few chips. The issue as others have mentioned is that the real nut flop is on the flush. A rag gets out kicked so often that you have to be a disiplined folder to play it at all. If you can't fold aces when your reraised and told your beat postflop don't play it at all. I personally like playing it once and awhile after I've established my table image as extremely tight. But rarely in early position.
I used to play Ax suited all the time, but in the last month or so, after reading this site and other articles, fold it almost all the time. Except at a SNg today.
Limped in with Ad7d - button min raises - I call - flop comes 4-6-5 rainbow - check - check - turn is a 3 - I bet the pot - button calls - river is 8 -
I bet pot - button goes all in - I call - button has 7s-9s for a higher straight !!
Now, if I had of folded my A-rag -
Definite fold here till you understand the dynamics of the table. Why call with a good possibility of folding on the flop? Only bleeding off your chips and will get you short stacked all but to quickly.
