  • top 50 suited hands?

    when this month i playing in pso skill, always have to play with 3 - 5 players.
    i either sit out for the a while or try to play trap and build the stack in early stage, so pick starting hand become important.
    i read a hand ranking against multi players AA KK QQ AKs JJ AQs KQs(7th) AJs KJs(!?) ATs(!?) AKo(11st!?) TT(12nd)...AQo(18th) KQo(20th) AJo(28th...wt?- -")
    so suited does counts, maybe similar to omaha hands.
    start to realize sometimes offsuit high cards doesnot play very well against multi opponents, so i start fold AQo AJo in early position

    Alright, let me go through the basics and then you can decide.

    1 ---- Check out either the lessons or google "poker hole cards." This will give you a list of the initial starting hands in Texas hold'em arranged in eight groups. The groups go from best, group one, to the worse, group 8. Keep a copy along with the basic strategy for these cards.

    2 ---- Excluding paired cards, such as AA, KK, 55, and 22, your hand can have two cards of the same suit or two different suits. Their strength is based on the highest card and the distance between them. For example, if you had King-Ten, there are three cards between them to complete a straight. More than four means no straight possible, such as King-Five.

    3 ---- Suited cards will be ranked higher than the same cards unsuited since the flush is possible. However, you should remember the flip side of that coin. A suited hand without the possibility of a straight, such as Ace-Seven, leaves you few possibilities to improve if you miss a flush draw.

    4 ---- Regardless of the lessons, any two cards can be winners. That is the random factor of the deal. You can affect the odds by holding stronger cards than your opponent, but if the flop comes up with 2 - 2 - 2 and you hold pocket aces, you will lose to the person holding 7 - 2 offsuit. Knowing the odds of a certain combination winning will give you the advantage over the long run. Just remember, pocket aces, in a one-on-one situation, will win 85% of the time. It also means you will lose 15% of the time.

    5 ---- One of the basic ideas behind betting is to isolate your opponent. If you hold pocket aces and there are five others in the hand, your cards are not that strong. The fewer in a hand, the better your chances. This is why so many advice sitting out the early rounds with the maniacs. Too many are willing to call with virtual trash.

    That said, I would advice you to exercise caution with suited cards. Too wide a spread means no straight possibility. Too low exposes you to higher flushes. If you prefer chasing the flush, be ready to fold whenever the flop has less than two in your suit.
