Even more important is how we handle our cards because their value is only secondary (have you experienced a situation where 27 is a better hand than AA )

2-7 is only a better hand if you know 90% or more that you are involved in a hand, where 3-4 villains are holding monsters and are preflop reraising and 3 beting them each other - but the question is which maniac call these/ go all in with 2-7 :).
in my opinion this situation is more than rare because villains holding that monsters have to limp and play passive so that you have the chance to see the full board and you must hit it 2 times, best way you get trips on flop with 22 and hit a another 2 on river if there is A on turn between.

By the way i never won a big hand with 2-7 os, one time in freeroll with 2-7 suited in spades or hearts but only with a lucky river and no villain was holding a higher flush ;-).

any card has potential. but if you look at the GTO, then garbage hands will have a negative chance, which means that if they win, then this is rather an exception.

You know, it really depends a lot on your opponents playing style (especially on post-flop). That's the first thing. The number of big blinds in your stack. That's second. :unsure:

It can also be attributed to 10 5, if I'm not mistaken, with this hand D. Branson won the bracelet. Personally, I can't always play with a similar combination, although sometimes you fold, and on the board there is either a set or a full house!! So this is more of an exception and it's better to stick to GTO ranges.

Yes, poker cards come in different ways and their strength depends on playing with such cards correctly, sometimes even 72 are stronger than aces, it's true if 72 can go to watch the flop cheaply and there are two pairs then she can beat aces it's a cool game that any card can win any other cards

".....because their value is only secondary".
Perhaps this is correct (although I have some doubts) but the player must be quite experienced and skilled. On the other hand, if a beginner starts playing all hands in a row, because "more important is how we handle our cards", then most likely he will just steadily lose money day after day.

Yes, sometimes a player who often enters the pot with a garbage hand can win against AA, but in the end, playing with a garbage hand will lead to losing money!!! 7 2 or similar hands have too little winning potential and too much risk of losing a big pot because even if you hit a set or a flush or two pair, your opponent will quite often have a set with a better kicker or a higher flush!!! And after such hands, I very often see players complaining that they were unlucky, although in fact they simply should not have entered the pot with such hands)))

Every card can win but with less chances than others, so you shouldn't play any two.

when you can see the flop for free with any two cards, this can be a huge play :)

Any hand could be better than AA depending on streets, til the flowing river.
