Hello all.

Do any of you guys have pocket cards they always play that are NOT a premium hand???

For example, I have become attached to Q2. I don`t always play it, but the amount of times it hits the flop seems to be unusual!!! (I know it is because I am looking out for it - I probably don`t notice the times when I lay it down!!!)

Also, do u guys think that it could be put into your strategy to always play a certain `poor` hand? Could u imagine if I played Q2 in any position and most of the time I was happy to call a raise of say 3 times bb. If I won people would think I was mad, if I lost and showed it they would think I was mad!!!

What do you all think. If you have any examples of the pros doing this tell me.

Thanks guys

Some of my favourite hands has to be either pocket 9's, 9-8(spades if possible) or 10-9 and ofcourse AA(at times)

Reasons for liking these hands like 9-8 spades is probably because of watching Rounders lol, thats what i think anyway, it just seems to hit alot of flops and ive flopped afew straights with it and the same with 10-9 aswell. Pocket 9's always seem to hit trips on the flop for me!

I'm a sucker for JTs - although it's a pretty good hand. I'll often raise with it from any position as first into the pot. If I'm calling a raise it depends on position and other action so far.

I honestly play 84 whenever I can, purely for the flop, ie 88x/44x or 567x.

As for other hands, QT sooted is another favourite. And 22 when a 2 flops is so well disguised.

are they not top 10 premium hands aloe?
AA KK QQ JJ TT AK AQ AJ AT and 84os???

Your right i'm a premium player, but it is safe and as long as my bankroll keeps climbing I must be doing something right. I did forget to include pocket pairs, 84o suited connectors etc... it all depends on the situation, blinds, how many people in etc....;)

no i meant do you consider them 3 hands as premium hands. I dont mind AQ and AK, but AJ is dangerous in certain situations.

LOL! Yeah I know what you mean with the J but then we could say the samething with the Q, alot of it I guess is a gut feeling at that moment in a given situation, but I still like it. Alot of people play A with anything small I find J as a kicker to work most times. So I guess yeah I consider all 3 of those hands premium.

I think we all are m8!!!

But I said that are NOT premium hands - come on, play the game :D

Sorry, sorry. I like 78s and 89s a lot, which of course is not unusual. And I seem to make most of my sets with pocket 7s. Also, DEUCES NEVER LOSES
