View Full Version : What Is Your Favourite Marginal Hand?

For me, I love playing/limping in with low pocket pairs at ring tables.

It's an easy fold when you don't hit a set on the flop and more often than not win you big $$$ when you DO. Especially with an ace or king there too.

love playing my J9 suited. will easily call 40 with it lots of flushes and st8's i get

My personal favorite is the suited 8 9. It's one me a few huge limit pots by hitting straights or flushes with it. In no limit however it is the 2 7. Generally whenever i get 2 7 and a couple of beers in me, I bluff with it every single time. And being the drunk jerk that I am, I always show it.

J 10, suited or not, is my favorite hand to play

With good position in an unraised pot with some other limpers my favorite hand is probably Ax suited.
Right behind that are small and medium pairs and then J10s, Q10s, K9s

I love to play a little 35 or 57 suited.... catch someone completely offguard with the "unplayable" straight cards.

I've had good luck with Q-10, or at least I did until lately. It's a 20 rule hand, but not one that most pros suggest you play until typical circumstances.

:ts: :js:

10 - J Suited - Works most every time (if you want to call it marginal) for me-

Early in a Freeroll that's ALLIN!!!

8 9 suited, leaves the door open three ways.

I don't know how marginal this is. Most folks would call it piss poor, but I like to play a four and a whore.
