In Texas Hold’em like all poker games there are good and bad hands. There are some that it is really better not to play. Here are the worst starting hands you can have that are best to drop:
1) 4-7, 4-8, 5-8, 3-6… .:
All these hands still win quite rarely, especially if they are not of the same suit. Throw them away! Still in the small blind. If you’re in the big blind you can see the flop with them, but only if it doesn’t cost you more.
If the board gives you a miracle flop of 3-4-5, you will get a straight. But someone with 6-7 will win you over. If you get a straight flush, someone will probably be a higher flush. So this is a hand to be dismissed.
2-7 is considered the worst hand in Texas Hold’em. This is the smallest hand you can have. You cannot hope for a straight because there are four cards between the 2 and the 7. Even if you get two pair with it will be two small pair and therefore weak. Only hope the color but your color will not be high either. This hand is called the hammer the hammer in English, because with this hand you are sure to receive a sledgehammer.
This hand has the same problem as the one on it. The only difference is that you have an 8 instead of a 7. But that’s still a weak card. Whether the two cards are the same suit or not, it’s weak and to be discarded anyway.
5) Ace + low card
Another mistake common to beginners is to throw themselves headlong into the game as soon as they have an ace in their hands. Again, this hand will probably win sometimes but unless you call yourself Doyle Brunson you better be extra careful or drop.
6) a picture + a weak card
Same observation as for the hand above, do not go for it because you have a king or a queen. Associated with a low card example king and 3 these hands are most of the time losing hands, so we fold …
we call this hand Dolly Parton, it is in reference to a movie, it is a bad hand statistically
This hand is legendary because Doyle Brunson won two World Series with it. But it’s not a good hand. Doyle Brunson is Doyle Brunson, the poker man we wish you to become but before playing like him….
9) 3-8 and 3-7:
3-8 and 3-7 bad hands that should not be played; 3-8 you can’t even hope for a sequel with….
10) 2-9, 3-9 and 4-9:
Three combinations, all three as bad as each other The only positive thing that can be found in these three hands is 9. If you have a pair of 9s, then you will be sitting on an average pair. But she can still be beaten by someone with a pair of tens, jacks, queens, kings or aces.
