I dont mean to be a debby downer but if really almost all your profits came from mid level suited connectors, then something must not be right with your game. I agree that they working well in some situaton (its certainly speaks for itself when you flopped the right cards like above though I wouldnt play mid level offsuit connectors oop like you did, hey thats just me), but you have to be more careful, cuz somebodies setmining or flushdraw against these hands one day will be a success then you stuck with half of your stack gone in time of the river and you will be beaten already (and probably might not know about it).

What'you really think i play only low suitted connecting hand ?ofcourse is dangerous play this after flop,they can get flush draw,paired for full house on turn or river,but if you want make some profit in this game,you must put money to risk,i play over 3 years and believe me tight play are lose play.i play ABC strategy and always lose,its not work on cash game.In right position and nice flop low connected hands are most profitable hands in poker

You can play monsters more profitable too! But you need more discipline and improve skills for. Look at regular players, they played premium hands like low connectors and they have no problem with "loose all or win"

I always love to have the high end straight vs the low end straights, you are sure you will get paid, because they have a straight, also if they have one lower than yours they will pay all the time. Nice hand by the way, thats the way to play suited cards, you make it on the flop got some fish hooked on the flop and you reeled them in on the river.

Playing those low cards definately can be profitable on occassion... I generally fold them unless I'm on one of the blinds,...and if it's cheap enough to call, like when you're on the small blind and you just have to make a min bet,...I'll play them,...particularly if they are suited....for 2 reasons...
1) Flushes don't come along ALL that often, so to me it's worth the risk if only 3 of that suit comes down in all 5 of the community cards.... Getting out flushed happens very seldom...
2) Not too many folks suspect the little cards will pay off to anybody because they're all looking to make their big pocket pay off...and a lot of them will chase for a high pair or something...
So if you play them carefully and conservatively,...you COULD wind up with a handsome payoff....if you have the guts to see them all the way to the river...
You could get a flush, a straight, or maybe even 2 pair or trips would be enough to win the hand...

I used to be a fan of those cards, but I play them a lot less now. Mostly in position, with an early raise (moderately sized) and with at least 1 caller, hopefully 2. But be careful when they hit the flush, don't go hog wild because lots of people call raises with A-rag suited hoping to land the nut flush.

My favourite type of hands to see a multi way flop are always small suited connectors.These hands always play well post flop as you nearly always know where you are in the hand unlike pocket pairs where unless you hit a set you are never sure if you are in front or not
