This is a discussion on What are the worst hands you play with? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Players that are tight I know play more premium hands like AK, AQ, 10-10, while looser players can call suited connectors or just lower cards
It really does depend on the situation. Against the right player I can and will raise 32s and 72o. but the times I have done that are very far and very extreme times. Normally some lower suited connectors are my worst hands
It highly depends on position and what Iím seeing at the table. The tighter the table, the more often I would raise. Likewise, if Iím in late position, Iím willing to bet or raise (on limpets) with low pairs or low suited connectors or gappers. Again, only in a tight table. With a loose table, and especially with maniacs, I would probably tighten up and only go in with more premium hands, and range is highly dependant on position.
You're almost always better sticking to the better cards, IF you're getting them. Sometimes the situation warrants playing just about anything. I will definitely play 72o if my plan is to set up a big bluff. Since I know I don't have a chance of wining with my cards, I can easily pull out at any time if things start to go sideways.
As everyone says, it depends on the situation. If I am on the button or in the small blind and nobody raised or call, I don't care about my cards, or even in half positions if the table is very passive or near the bubble and I have a large stack. But I think it is always better to limit the number of garbage hands that one plays. You can save yourself bad times.
I would play any hand but the lesser hands would play more in position. Usually my style is tight but when the opportunity presents itself playing loose has to be a priority to to get ahead in the tournament.
72s will be the worst hand I will choose to play nowadays , rarely , in position , and when I hit on the flop/board , it's very hilarious I didn't use to play weak hands , but I have to try and adjust to others' habits , imitate them and try win pots with s^%$ hands .I still have very much to learn what hands to play when etc . Replays and live games streams help see what weak hands to choose , it's usefull
re: Poker & What are the worst hands you play with?
Sure, you can play anything depending on position. However, I find with lower cards even suited connecters and the like, when you hit the hand you can't get a lot of value because it doesn't connect with what other people are playing. Also, I feel that the big pots come when the draws come in which means that many times you are forced to chase and lose a lot in other spots.
There are very few situations where I play the absolute worst hands like 72o:
- I'm in the BB and can see a flop for no additional investment
- I have been card dead for a long time and can get other players to believe that I finally picked up a monster hand
- I'm getting good pot odds due to many limpers/callers
For other hands, it obviously depends on the situation. If I want to play a little bit looser, I find it better to just add in more speculative hands like suited connectors/1 gappers and small pairs. That works out better for me than deciding to just play any random trash.
in general i try fish a bit in the beginning of thectournament when blinds are small like less than 1/100 times my stack - really can play anything also other players dont expect you to have full house on 2 7 7 on the flop😀
later it may depend on stack and position - steal blinds maybe if it been around a rounds and i am sitting on button or 1-2 spots earlier but never with the aim to actually play the hand
