SURVEY.. What Your Fav Hand?

    I am one of the few people who love pocket Jacks. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to play them and I think I now play them better than most. Because of this, this is the hand I probably have the widest +EV spread over the field with.

    I've also become very fond of T7s (ala Daniel Negreanu) and 97s (The Persian Carpet Ride). These hands are absolutely devastating vs some strong ranges because when they hit boards they are seldom dominated and can make some very disguised monster hands.

    Hand I've won my biggest pot with: QQ when I hit quads on the river vs AA (AQ9 4 Q)
    Hand I've lost my biggest pot with: TT. Board runout of AT7 A 3 (He had AT somehow)

    Aside from AA?
    I like baby suited As because one can 3bet or call with them. Play both ends of the board. And they have nut flush potential.
    But to make it a little more interesting, I'll say 86s since it's one of my top 3 that I play way over average profit potential.

    T7 and 97 ... adds to her range smiles
    you know i think in Alex Fitzgerald studies he says with AA you win small pots or lose giant ones... and in looking at my own stats he right... the biggest losses i ever had was with AA

    Not sure where Alex is getting his info but AA is the most profitable starting hand in poker by far.
