David Sklansky should incorporate this into his books.

JQ vs KK has more than 6 outs to improve
any 89T or 9TK,TKA the list goes on and on.
JQ vs KK is actually a small favorite,especially if its sooted.

Now that's just moranic. Obviously KK has blockers to the straights so is actually a small favourite to JQ.

Youre speaking from a GTO perspective as im including merged ranges,as well as other quantitive associations and raw calculated drawing power.
With that being said...I stand 100% behind my first analysis

Then relax, herro. This isn't mega game talk. It's meta game. You're safe.

QQ gets quads

AK gets quad aces if unsuited, and often a royal flush (depending on the queen suits) if suited.

Now I what the "morans" are thinking.

"But we only draw 5 cards!"

Over time, won't we draw them all?

Debate over.

He could still get a better 4 of a kind though.

Just draw the 2 remaining queens, draw 1 ace, draw 1 king and draw 1 of the 3 broadways your opponent would need for a royal flush (if he has AKs). That way your opponent cannot possibly win

You overestimate my drawing skills. Bad stick figures is pretty much it.....

I'll just take the 2 queens and the pot while he's looking for a pencil to draw with.
