Playable Hands Part 2

Written by: Dave Colclough (2004-10-18 22:52:16)

As stated in the previous article, the following are suggested guidelines for an average 9 handed $2/$4 Limit Hold 'em table, where it is neither an aggressive or very tight line up. Slight adjustments would have to be made if the game became too tight, and likewise if the game became a little wild.

Pocket Pairs were discussed in the previous article.

The following is advice for 'suited' starting hands, i.e. both cards are of the same suit:

  • AK - Play and raise at every opportunity in any position, only put the brakes on against tight opponents
  • AQ - Play and raise in any position. Don't re-raise
  • AJ, A10, KQ - Play in any position. Raise in late position. Raise in the blinds heads up
  • A9, A8, A7, KJ - Call in un-raised pots. Preferably in mid or late position. Only raise in the blinds heads up against weak opponents
  • A5, A4, A3, A2, K10, K9, QJ, Q10, J10 - Only call in late position in un-raised pots. Pass in raised pots or in bad position. Only raise in the blinds heads up against weak opponents
  • K8, K7, K6, K5, K4, K3, K2, Q9, Q8, J9, J8, T9, T8, T7, 98, 97 87, 86, 76, 75, 65, 64, 54 - Only call in late position in un-raised pots. Pass in raised pots or in bad position.
  • Q7, Q6, Q5, Q4, Q3, Q2, J7, J6, J5, J4, J3, J2, T6, T5, T4, T3, T2, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 85, 84, 83, 82, 74, 73, 72, 63, 62, 53, 52, 43, 42, 32 - Pass these hands. They are unprofitable.

The following is advice for un-suited starting hands, i.e. both cards are of a different suit:

  • AK, AQ - Play and raise in any position. Re-raise in late position.

  • QJ, Q10, Q9 ,J10 ,J9, T9, 98, 87 - Pass in early and mid position. Call in late position.
