One of the classic examples of relative hand strength being different than overall card strength is the following all in probabilities: AKs vs. 22: 49.70% to win J10s vs. 22: 53.70% to win I was wondering, is almost all of this 4% disparity due to the lack of ability for AK to make J-2 to K-4 straights? To avoid blockers to the straight, how about AKs vs. 77: 47.88% to win J10s vs. 77: 50.82% to win If AK could make all straights, would they certainly be better than J10 against the underpairs?

Yes I do believe that is a driving factor. As another example, QJs is a statistical favorite vs every pocket pair below 88, since 88 blocks two cards necessary to make one of the straights.
