Keep track of the worst starting hand to make better combinations

In playing poker, nothing could make a player happier than a pair of Kings or Aces. However, this is not applicable in any Hold'em game. Although there is a big chance that a player will be dealt with cards valued at 10 like Kings and Jacks, the chance of getting any pocket Ace is very small.

Worst Starting Hands

Most players think that there is nothing better than pocket aces or paired royals, but that is not entirely true. In this game, there are flops, turns, rivers and hole cards. After the community cards fall, you will want to have even just a single paired pocket card so you can make winning combinations.

The card combination is everything in poker. Although a pair of 9s may not that be appealing, they have a higher value than having a pair of 10s on occasions when the community cards are J, 9, 4, 8 and 2. Combinations such as straights, flushes and full houses need to be taken into consideration. To get these combinations, you need to have the highest hand that consists of hole cards.

What Hands Should You Avoid?

The worst starting hand in poker is that which is a combination of low ranked and unpaired cards. If you have these worst starting hand, it is better to fold than to hold. It may be hard to believe but a combination of 3-7 and 3-8 is just a little better than a 2-7 and 2-8 combination. However, these combinations are ranked very low so it's better that they are just folded.

Picture cards, low cards and Aces also need to be avoided. In order to win, avoid being arrogant. Instead, be wise in dealing with your cards and choose those that give you a winning chance, no matter how slim it is. Keep in mind that what matters most is the combination of your cards, and these card combinations usually require sequences.
