I personally find the pair of Jacks the most enjoyable. Not the best hand possible, not the highest % of being paid, BUT in my case, over 90% of the times it has payed good, not just "good", REALLY GOOD.

On the other hand, AA always seem to give me false hope and make me crash like a mothertrucking plane.

AAs are my Nemesis and will always be my Nemesis. I hate AAs, I've won more K4 hands than AAs.

I don't know why and as you know, K4 isn't particularly good.

Good Luck

I quite like jj as well,a lot of players say they don't like it but I think it is quite easy to get away from if the cards come bad and like you say it can pay well especially with a set against high pairs.
I really can't agree about AA though,I'd have them every hand if possible,just be prepared to let them go sometimes.

JJ has the advantage of being easy to lay down ^^ However, AA are still obviously the hand that brings most net worth Tongue Love the feeling of seeing those rockets

I like low pocketpairs like 66 or 44... easy to play with

try to get to see the flop as cheap as possible... if you hit it pays of especially when there s an ace on the board...then you can check and wait for the raise

If you hit nothing just an easy fold on any raise

Someone who likes hooks? I hate those with a passion they are my doom hand.

AQs or KQs are probably my most favourite to play. They offer up a lot of uses for premiums as well as for straight and flush purposes.

Either this is false (most likely is),you do something terribly, terribly wrong, or you talk about a samplesize of like 5 hands...

AA KK or 6/8 suited

those are my 3 choices, I love to hate K/J as when I fold them they always hit and when I play them someone has a better kicker

As for postflop play I personally prefer all the suited connectors and small pockets, by far the hands that are easiest to play IMO, there are many situations postflop where you either want to get it in or when you don't want to invest another single chip into the pot.

To play overall, whatever is profitasble of course Big Smile

I very much doubt that. It may seem that way to you but it's almost certainly selective memory.

Anyway my favorites; AA, KK and middle to high suited connectors.

I know that AKs, AA, and other premium hands is good, but I also love to play A5s. I can't fold it, sometimes I feel that I shouldn't play A5, but I play them and I know how to play them good Dollar
Of course I will never play A5 at cash tables, or call all-in in tournaments.
And sometimes I love 56s-78s. If many players (tight players) involved in pot, I always bring in game with low hands, because I know they're tight and they hold all good(high) cards from deck, so now I'm favorite Blink

Pocket Jacks are definitely my least favourite hand to play. Unless a Jack comes on the flop i have no qualms about folding them. Doyle Brunson said there are three ways to play Jacks and they are all wrong!!

Pocket aces of course. Not to much thought there for me at least on how to play with them,
since almost every time its an all in preflop. And like doubletop i hate Jacks. Have lost too many times with them, even after flopping a set. Simply a disaster.

Nowadays i pnly play pot limit omaha but since you did not say on what game i will tell you that my fav hand is AAQT double suited Smile

Not sure why but you always seem to attract action when you play this hand, usually people have KK or K high flushes and join the action.

My favourite hands are all pocket pairs higher than nines, I love playing them.

And my least favourite hand is AK, you usually make only top pairs with top kickers and you don´t get much money from your opponents and they can still quite easily catch a better hand (spike a second pair...)

I love playing 89s. I don't really know why but I get a really nice feeling when I see them turn up in my hand and the feeling of the straight or flush rolling out onto the board gives me a really warm feeling inside. A bit like hot chocolate on a cold day!

I like J9 suited, the reason was only, that i´ve won some big pots with this hand in the last time. But i loose much more with the greatest hands like AA, KK and so on... It seems, that the gambling hands give you more chances to win Confused

AA's for sure- there's no second though about calling an all-in or even 5-6 all-in's at once... if you lose- you lose, that's part of the game (and percentages), you can take on the 2/7 off hero's from Russia and Bangladesh, you feel almighty poker pro that cannot be stopped by no-one except rigged software

Suited connectors are really fun to play, especially on the button, you get often so many great draws (and sometimes really strong made hands).
