That's right. I forgot the exact hand but it was something like 7-6 suited is the best hand to have when going up against a high pocket pair because of the straight and flush possibilities..ThECreWKiLLa said:that is probably the best situation u wanna be in with AA u dont wanna see suited connectors.
check pocket aces and die /chris fergesson/howard lederermccarthp said:your all forgetting one thing chip stack and table position. If your short stacked at the table and have KK/AA push your chips all in there is no way in hell you would slow play them in that situation. On the other hand if you have a reasonable stack compared to everyone else at the table i would check or call the BB with KK just to see the flop. This has worked for me plenty of times. Out of all the times I have had KK and checked/called the BB, I probably flopped a set 75% of the time.
With AA i like to just call the blind (especially when i am early to act). That way i let someone else at the table make the raise for me and i can quietly play a huge hand before i psychologically rape them as i turn over my rockets. Even if there are more people in the hand than there would have been if i raised, i would still rather take my chances of seeing a shiesty flop than scaring everyone away preflop with a monster hand. (obviously this strategy would change in different situations: i.e. if i have the big stack at the table)tsline13 said:The best thing to do with pocket aces is to raise a lot.
RhiNy6705 said:KK vs AA is a pretty well known match in the poker world. If you have the AA, you have a slight advantage. If the Flop shows lets say a Q K A, you still have the advantage even thought your opponant has 3 of a kind also. If the community finishes with a K, you have lost because of 4 of a king - but that is more then likely NOT to happen[/QUOTE one other big head ache is Poc K"s you can't really play em big because what if you get A 2 4 on board well you know that the A will crush you then u havve the chasers looking for strs. so thats another one of those you got to wait till end to make your move the pr of A's will make a bet for you too feel out and then you know you K's are no good
hey i was wondering since you knew the odds of A's and 7's was that in a book and if so are there any books out there that give you hand odds i know there are Poker strategy books but what about ones that tell you odds of your hand against others.icepari said:This is nonsense man.The odds of AA losing against 77 are more than AA losing against KK cause the 77 hand gives you more straights.
