What do you do when you get hand after hand of junk cards! Do you get bored? Do you just frustrated and call an all-in or big raise? What do you do to pass the time of repeated junk hands? :joyman: :confused:

I spend my time studying the other players. I also look on here. I do not play the hands at any point. I used to try to make stuff work and I realized I was just blowing off needed chips. Patience can win money and lack of it busts you. We all have it, just realize the good players are willing to wait.

I try to find a chance to get more aggressive, and I have patience. If nothing works I just end the session!

If in a casino, I get up and hand to a blackjack tourney and hope my 7-4 and 8-3 hands follow!

I watch what other people are doing at the table. Watch what they are betting and how much. Do they bet the same with a drawing hand as they do a made hand? Are they cbetting at a high frequency? Do they shut down betting at the turn? ALl kinds of things.

Also look at people calling and try to guess what cards they have in their hand at showdown. This will go a long way on improving your range analysis.

Even garbage can turn into gold on the flop. I just start to play LAG style.

Limp

The thing about crap cards is when they hit. Suited connectors can be good but I like connected alittle more than a weak flush. I'm down to limp into 2 pairs or trips one the low end cards. It is also true every leak is a smaller double up when payday finally appears. This just means pick the right spot, if you got 3+ limpers in the pot could be time, they prolly have the AKQJs. I like this spot to try.:icon_bigs

I don't do anything. I scroll through social networks or watch YouTube. In general, it is necessary to develop, so that less garbage hands come. The more developed, the less garbage hands. In principle, there is a Zoom game, where you can discard unnecessary hands and play only with good ones.

I fold, but sometimes such hands will open two pair or a straight)

Hi.
I am not doing anything. I am just patiently waiting for strong cards and I am in no hurry. I believe that hurrying only leads to losses and frustrations.
Good luck.

I fold but if I have a good image at the table. I don't hesitate to take the opportunity to steal the blinds when it's the right time.

I study my opponents and practice my hand reading. At every action I think about what I would do if I was still in the hand - with what cards would I bet, call, fold? So every hand I'm not in turns into a study session.

I'll also loosen up a bit when in stealing position as I'll have a tight table image.

I just throw everything off. But from position, it is natural to sometimes steal the blinds under favorable conditions for myself.

I get frustrated and start to play erratically. Not a good strategy but it makes me feel better and sometimes I get lucky.

If the cards are not good to play, then you just have to sit and watch others play and wait for the weather from the sea.May bluff occasionally to steal the blinds.

I either play more tables or watch tv while playing. Always best to keep folding, your run will come.

Even garbage can be gold

I like to think of poker as an investment in each two cards if I have nine three offsuit it's not a very good investment, however if I'm in the big blind and nobody phrases. And a flop comes out in my favor I will invest in my nine deuce accordingly good luck aces good luck on the cables everyone and as always have fun

I mostly wait but if it's lasting too long, then it worth taking a risk with bad hands before you have nothing left to play with.
