The unexpected strength of TT

I know TT is a strong hand, but I was surprised by how strong it has proved for me, according to my PT stats. OK, I only have stats for about 4,500 hands, but it's still interesting. AA's been my strongest hand - no surprise there - giving me a win 77% of times played. Next, though, comes TT, with 73%, beating KK at 68%, JJ at 64% and *trouncing* QQ at 42%. Does anyone else have a similar statistic, and/or explanation for this? It seems counterintuitive to have TT beat two higher pairs consistently. I know my sample is small, and this may be an unrepresentative blip which would disappear in the long run, but even so, the TT vs QQ result seems particularly odd. Maybe I have some curious quirk in the way I play my pairs, and especially QQ, but I'm b******d if I know what it is...

Post some QQ hands, then we can decide if it's bad luck or poor play. :)

KK trounces AA's winrate for me, and I'm losing with TT - but this is over a small sample size so far (I've made a new dbase since I stopped playing NL ring), so it's pretty silly for me to jump to conclusions over it.

My nemesis has always been JJ, that damn hand screws me every time. TT has always been an OK hand for me, much better than JJ. Most of my early exits in tourney has been due to JJ. No matter how I play them nor what position I'm in they never hold up...

TT i think is a great hand -heads up. not a hand you want 3 or 4 callers on.

Posting my QQ hands from my PT database to this thread is beyond me, I'm afraid, Dorkus, and in any event I doubt anyone wants to look through 20+ of my hands...! But following razorback's comment, I'll try to have a look through my TT hands to see how many players were still in with me and what my position was when I played them.
