In the previous survey, I asked which hand tournament poker players hated the most. The winning hand was pocket Jacks.
However, in that survey, I left off A-K.
A-K or Big Slick used to be called “Walking Back to Houston.” From what I’ve read, the reason it was called “Walking Back to Houston” was played in Dallas, the players from Houston would come into town and play A-K strong. Unfortunately, they’d run into a pair of aces and go bust M카지노.
In this survey, I asked the players which hand they would prefer to deal with in the middle of a poker tournament. Again, it is your typical no limit tournament. You have an average chip stack, and are in middle position. Everyone folds to you.
Which hand would you like to get in this situation?
A-K unsuited or J-J?
Okay, before you read on, which hand would you prefer? Here you are acting first.
The results were as follows:
A-K unsuited 91%
Are you surprised by the results? Are you surprised anyone would pick pocket jacks?
I am sure the reason the players hate pocket cards is that they have a way to often. It will happen over 65% of the time. Also, I am sure that they have experienced times when cards were higher than a Jack, but they ran into their opponent hitting a set on the flop. Not good. But it’s happened to all of us.
