The only exception is 22 vs AKs, if they AKs is not the same suit as either of the twos, then the AKs is a SLIGHT fav.



This was quite interesting. How come just 22 and not 33? Because of some straightposibilities?

Because in any double paired board the AK also wins. Obviously if the pocket pair is 33 an not 22 there is one less pair in the board that makes the AK a winner.

Always at the beginning of a hand pocket pair is in the lead so I preffer those over AK. Its still kinda coin flip so be aware.

Happy new year! Confused

Against all possible ranges that opponents may shove with, AK is definitly and advantage over smaller PP. This is because AK will dominate many any Ax and still has the odds against other unpaired high hands. The slight dissadvantage it has agains pocket pairs will be outweighed by all the other hands. ( lets hope you are not going all in against AA or KK)
