  • something to confuse you!

    hi guys i have noticed we have had no insane posts of late so with that in mind thought i would post an insane post,for you all to debate and get your theories in.

    ok i will keep it short and when have some posts,will get into a good debate hopefully on this.

    Im not sure,what two hole cards as the most outs?

    So them two cards surely should be the best starting hand in poker?

    More outs,more of a favourite?

    AA has the most outs, anything that doesnt give the opponent 2 pair or better is an "out" for AA

      I can not resist no longer ,I need to answer this one, in my eyes its not AA there only good pref and we all know how often they get busted i'm talking from a cash game point of view a hand like JT,s yes very speculative, but every hand it hits gives the nut straight or the nut straight flush surely that's the best hand in poker. AA bores me you either win a BB or u 4bet someone into a fold either way never much to be made with them or the other factor someone calls your raise and hits 2 pair of better a set, and u feel so committed with that pocket pair, JT,s is a easy hand to get away from but can also earn you a big pot and works well in multi way pots how do you feel about your pocket aces with 3 callers behind you?

          OMFG Please,ANYONE,download a tracking software program (such as PT3 or HEM) either as a purchase or a free trial,or just download your HH's and pore through them meticulously and try to find a hand,OVER A LARGE SAMPLE,that you win a higher % of the time with than AA and,more importantly,you win more chips/money with than AA. If you can't prove that you win more with AA then I'll make 2 suggestions... 1: You don't have the first clue how to play AA. 2: You can continue to blame the software,the cards,the lunar cycles,the CIA,Jamie Gold,The Loch Ness Monster or whatever else floats your boat but so long as you do you will continue to punt reams of value with your Aces. In answer to your query holdem---any two suited cards that can be completed to a straight both up and down would have the most outs pre-flop as far as how you're framing this question. But how many of them are "true" outs is the question you start running into with hands like that. You may complete a straight or a flush only to lose to a higher one. The only way to ensure not being beaten by a higher straight or flush is,of course,to have an ace at the top of your hand. But that would remove some of your "outs",as you're framing this,because a hand with an ace in it is of course capped on it's potential for a straight,at least in using BOTH cards (AK can never play both to a wheel and A2 or the like can never play both to Broadway...). (For the record my favorite TWO hands are AK spades (sexiest looking hand in poker IMO---used to get in bad spots by not being able to let it go when necessary but I'm working on that...) and any 109 suited (for some reason I seem to have more good fortune with this hand than I do with J10---and my numbers back me up on this,it is a THIN margin though---but I just "feel" better with 109 in my hand...). Oh,and of course,the Pokerstars Monkey Nuts---94o. umbup:

                  The answer is none of them!!! Until the flop comes your hole cards have no outs!! evil:

                      Thanks for the responses,some interesting points.

                      This is not a topic on aa, the irelavance of aa been a mathmatical percentage is not the issue, the number of outs is.

                      How do we truly know or will ever know that in any given long time situation,probably well above life expectancy that other hands, could be 79 suited or 72 off suit dont actually win as equal to there conterpart aces?

                      Nothing in the laws of randomness says that 72 can not win 5 times in a row for example,
                      this is an unlikely outcome but no one who understands variance can and should argue with that point!

                      So why i ask myself is Aces more likely to hit the board more than say 72. The fact is they have the same likely hood of hitting in my version of poker philosophy.
                      With the exception that aces doesnt nesacarily have to hit to win.

                      Increased outs in any other game or betting type structure,surely the one with the most should be favourite to win, however in poker many will argue the case that this is not so,so why i ask?

                      Or is it the fact that over a huge period of time that actually atc will in fact balance the win/ loose factor making any 2 cards as equal.

                      no outs,jokers responce,interesting point m8t,i think i see what you are saying there.
                      Moxie very good again,and favourite hands not dissimilar from mine,so why do we have favourite hands,surely everones favourite should be aces.

                      Pokerpest72, my bro, interesting there bro,Jack Ten suited,a reasonable hand in most situations as long as played in the correct manor,i.e posistion,
                      i will happily call a raise with jt's even if i think the opp as aces as long as i have posistion and its not an all in call.

                      ???? what came first,limit or no limit poker does anyone know?

                      and on that question i will leave the rest of my points and views untill it has been answered,my feeling is that the game structure was desinged to see flops on a pot limit/limit basis,and nl changed the game into more of a fast pace gamblers game,producing more stack offs.

                        Well not really sure what that means b ? I thought the Q was about what has the most outs and I am truly cursed with aces and kings I guess its because I don't know how to play them, i'm going have to stop getting someone all in pref with them only for them to turn over pocket 3,s and I know i'm gonna get sucked out on, this isn,t a random once in a while thing i,m always losing with AA and KK I honestly do better with AQ than I do with aces pt4 tells me so, infact I just noticed i've won more off AQo than AK suited lol. it would be +EV for me to start mucking aa and kk hehe.

                        And who is blaming software ? not me I just run like dung and could not care less I love playing poker, don't care how bad I am at it I just love to play.

                        Come play at 200nl LMFAO come play at 1/2c and let me lol when some monkey with a 90% vpip busts your aces with 48s.

                        I have one for u bro, is poker still a game? How can anyone that's playing poker so serious be playing a game, they are turning it into a job and all the fun is being replaced with stats and stress.
                        I,ve stopped using my HUD on stars and now it feels fun again, like poker was meant to be.
