This is a discussion on Ace Queen off suit within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hello,
I have played now three months poker and play nl holdem on Pokerstars, it start to interested me how many time players loose last
if you check your play in the future with a hud you can become more aware.... king queen is generally a bad all in depending on factors..... aq do you mind a race? can you get one other person all in not multiple people? can you see a flop with multiple players is a lot of things position wise to ask and do
do you dare to dance with the devil in the pale moonlight
I have played now three months poker and play nl holdem on Pokerstars, it start to interested me how many time players loose last chips in all in with Ace Queen, me of course also.
I am now more careful with that hand.
hoping for reply thank you.
You have to understand ranges of your opponents. Sometimes you'll get your money in bad with Ace Queen, but realistically you're only a underdog vs AK, QQ, KK, and AA.
AK vs AQ, AQ has a 25% chance of winning.
QQ vs AQ, AQ has a 30% chance of winning.
KK vs AQ, AQ has a 30% chance of winning.
AA vs AQ, AQ has a 7% chance of winning.
You're flipping vs pocket pairs lower than QQ.
Know your opponent ranges and how he plays premiums. He might play JJ the same as the hands I mentioned above, or different. You can also sniff those situations out from feel. Your feel becomes more enhanced from volume so keep playing. The person can easily have TT or AJ or AT there, so sometimes you can 3 bet AQ there.
Also take your own and your opponents stack sizes into account. Generally the less blinds you have, the harder it is to get away from AQ and the less blinds your opponents has the wider his betting range will be.
If you go with that hand all-in often you will end losing money often.Personally i never go all-in with that hand in cash games i only go all-in with that hand in freeroll tournaments or when i'm really short stacked in the tournament.That hand is only good to raise with her when you are playing against very tight opponents that way you will know where are you on the flop.
Yes at first I was also excited after receiving bad letters getting AQ off
and when I flopped ace I put all the chips in the bet. But sometimes I lost to straight, flush, or even two pairs and ended up frustrating me. Nowadays I think of all the game possibilities to make a correct decision on the bet amount. Good development in your future game.
