well, id rather not have any of those, id always prefer to have AA, obviously. but:
Would you rather have KJo, 75s, 88, or A2s (in order)?
I suppose knowing that im just called and not 4bet
that 88 is the best. Followed closely by A2s, then somewhat of a distance for 75s, lastly KJo.
sure, if there was a chance (a big one) of being 4bet, Id hate to blow myself off 88 and not seeing a flop, those other hands im ok with that. but, knowing im getting called so we're atleast taking a flop, i think 88 fares best. ie, we can showdown and win unimproved, and everytime we DO hit a set we can pretty easily get our stack in. after that, A2s is fine bc im quite confident in top pair, and really it has the best "showdown value" if villain is ever calling oop with sub premium hands (ie not just pairs). lastly, KJo vs 75s is somewhat moot since both require help and if we dont win on the flop we're in trouble often, but 75s has a better shot of making a cinch hand, since w/ KJo we're going to be hoping: 1. we make a pair 2. it's good! ie. the threat of reverse domination or getitng there and not being good is bad bad bad
well, alot. so much so that im probably folding KJo alot to the open. whereas never folding 88 (and either 3betting or smooth calling)
