Default Favourite Starting Hand

Whats Is your Favourite No Limit Starting hand and why, or do you try not to have a "favourite hand"?

I like pocket 3's, they always seem to hit trips for me. I was playing a multi-table tournament at a lodge and was dealt pocket threes twice in a row and I hit trips then quads the next hand. This set me up for an easy second place a nice $1200 cash prize. I the 's

Gotta be AA. No better poker feeling then landing that. No worse feeling then losing with it either.

I guess this is a good place to ask,,, so, its early in the tourny, blinds arent high, no one has much more then the next player, you are in late position of what seems to be a loose tourny... do you play this aggressive? Or is this the time to slow play?

Default aside from

pocket rockets I enjoy getting suited 89 and Q10 if I am aloud to limp with these hands I hit lots of straights and flushes. I also am supersticious about 66 because then you are running with the devil when you hit the third six.

If the table is loose, I would slow play it until after the turn, and allow them to bet into me. At that point, since I'm in late position, if they bet (and especially if I have hit a set on the flop), I will raise and draw them in since they are already committed.

Default 9's

Pocket 9's always seem to flop for me. So dont be afraid to put it All-In

pre-flop. You'll come out victorious!

I would have to disagree with the having a no better feeling oh getting AA, because the better feeling is getting the AA and having people bet like a maniac at you. Times like that i look up and thank god i got those AA.

But as to my favourite hand... i love seeing Ak or AQ suited, but my favourite suit would be clubs. There is just something about clubs that i like, the look of it is just wonderful and gives me a nice feeling.

There is also some that i really hate to see, but since that is not tihs thread, I shall leave for another story.

To the End!
