Re: STOP OVERPLAYING POCKET PAIRS AND WHINING WHEN YOU LOSE WITH THEM!

J 10 Suited is a good hand under certain conditions. However, it is not the ideal hand against pocket Aces. You can catch a straight and lose to a higher straight.
Lower suited connectors are the ideal type of hand against Aces. That is a fact, not my opinion! 87 suited 76, 65, etc. will beat aces more often than any other hands.
I thought Ax sooted was doing better against aces cause you can hit the nut flush while 87s can only make the 7th nut flush. Are you sure it's not only your opinion ?

Re: STOP OVERPLAYING POCKET PAIRS AND WHINING WHEN YOU LOSE WITH THEM!

Wow glad this got bumped. I laughed as hard as I can remember from reading posts. Highlights for me were the KQ vs. AA overcards odds discussion, the guy who said he wasted two minutes of his life reading this (an Evelyn Woods graduate perhaps?) and the broken sarcasm detector.

I actually think this thread will help my game. Whenever people get mad at me when I win a hand for the way I play it, I usually say "I am not very good." Now I can back it up with my newly adopted theory on overcards being 3 times better than pocket pairs not even counting their straight potential. But what was most important was how many people responded about the correct % that overpairs should have. I am looking forward to at least 2 or 3 players at the table earnestly trying to correct me and maybe 1 or 2 surrepticiously trying to get them to be quiet. Life inside the aquarium should be fun.

Re: STOP OVERPLAYING POCKET PAIRS AND WHINING WHEN YOU LOSE WITH THEM!

Somehow after missing this thread for almost 2 years and spending 20 minutes reading it.... i still dont know whether to laugh or cry!

OP is hands down either the stupidest or most brilliant person ever. That is, if he is kidding and is really just 3rd leveling all of us, then this is the biggest ownage ever. If he is serious, then all I can say is YSSCKY.

OP, in case you are serious can you please recommend a good line for a situation I commonly face?

Basically, lets say I hold 7c7s and my opponent holds 45d. Usually the flop is something like

2d2s7d

My question is should I fold here if he pushes all in since he has 9 outs to improve and I only have 3? It would appear that I am a 3:1 dog, so folding here is clearly the correct play right?
