I am wondering what other players see as their least favorite starting hand.

Out of the top "strong" starting hands, I tend to lose way more when I have QQ, closely followed up with AK, suited or not.

I think any starting hand pair is strong, you can just call to see pre-flop and hope to hit a set

All unpaired cards with a value less than ten are irritating to me.

Pocket´s 6

Depending on how deep you are, if you don´t know how to release a hand it makes you pay more than it deserves while trying to hit a set.

I honestly don't have a favorite strong or weak hand because I play with anything in any position. Any cards you get you can win or lose

the hand I least want to receive is 72 and on top of that, yes, the worst hand I receive

I think AA is the best starting hand. It is not for nothing that this pair is the first in the pair table.

My least favorite starting hand is one of the best hands around. It always makes me happy to see pocket Kings but they do seem to lose more than they should. They don't but being such a premium hand it so much more memorable than others.

There is no better starting hand for me than AA

66 because it's not bad enough to fold

Any pocket pair under 10 is my least favorite starting hand. At that point I'd almost rather start with 7-2 off suit than pocket 7s. I just find anytime I have a low pocket pair someone has at least one card over 10 that they pair up with, if not a higher pocket pair to begin with.

KQ suited or J10 Suited they look nice but can’t really call any 3-bet with them

Recently, I have noticed that I am doing quite well when I get a QQ at the start

[ЦИТАТА = Дэвид Гибсон; 6213259] Мне интересно, что другие игроки считают своей наименее любимой стартовой рукой.
Из лучших «сильных» стартовых рук я, как правило, теряю намного больше, когда у меня есть QQ, за которым следует AK, хороший или
плохой.

Difficult to answer. Apparently each player has his own view on this issue. But in my case there is just a certain range with which I play or not, depending on what format of the tournament and at what stage this tournament.

Without a doubt, JJ is my least favorite hand. It is a pair that is dominated most of the times I play it.
