What pockets/boards do you hate to see?

I've seen posts on "What's your favorite starting hand", but this is the opposite. What pocket cards do you not like to see dealt to you? And I'm not talking about "72o, because it's the worst hand", I'm talking about what you feel to be "unlucky" to you. And I don't care what your Poker Tracker db says, or what "the long run" will bring, I'm talking all about feeling here.

For example:
I cringe when I'm dealt QQ or AK. (to me) It seems like when I lose with these two, I lose big. Or, if I'm behind, I never catch up.

Also, what do you hate to chase, or what... hand/rank/board do you never seem to catch or if you do you lose $$ on?

For me:
I HATE FLUSHES!!! It seems like I MUST have an Ace to win. If I have anything other than A, someone WILL have the higher flush. I actually had this happen today, I had K-high and someone else had the A-high. And when I do have the A-high either I get 4 to a flush on the flop and it never completes, or I complete but get trumped by a paired boat on the board. UGH!

Again, no stats and no db results, this thread is all about your gut feeling.

I would have to say that it is probly more of your mentle state when you get those hands. Bottom line if you feel like your gonna lose then you have already lost. you just need to feel that you are gonna win and do what you feel is the right play. like pantin said dont over play them as well as dont chase unless you are getting the right odds. If you are getting the right odds then mathmatically you will win over the long run. Just keep your chin up and try to continue to play the best you can and if your a winning player you will come out on top.

Good Luck

I used to hate J/J because it was a losing hand for me for a long time. I kept flopping sets with it, and losing to either flushes or straights. That's changed though, and it's one of my top 5 money makers.

I don't like A/J when I'm on the button and someone raised before me (I play 6-max $25NLH).
