Those hands are gold on tables that are limp partys. See the flop cheap and if you hit a monster it is payday.

On tighter tables those hands are good to play in late position. You can often collect the pot preflop or with a c-bet. And if you flop big, your hand will be well disguised.

TJ I will raise in position, limp to see a cheap flop OOP, with the other suited connecters I uassualy limp or fold them. Still if the table is very tight I might raise with them like 1/3 of the time.

In early stages of tournaments i usually fold them exept J10 s from cutoff or button.At later stages i loosen up my standards and play them more often..

At cash games(i play only shorthanded cash games) in position i raise (3bet) with them 25% of the time,limp in 55% and the rest i fold'em.If the pot is already raised i usually fold non-thinking,sometimes though i'll try to make a move with a re-raise(I rarely call).

Why play connectors only late in a tourney when the stacks are too shallow to get any value when you hit?

Btw i was talking about multi-table tournament,in which i dont spare my stack in marginal hands.Late in tournament(usually having big stack myself) i can loosen up my game and "bully" small stacks and big but too tight stacks,playing more hands when I have the implied odds.

In a word... I DONT

Suited connectors are a huge drain on your chips and the majority of hte time you miss completely.

I play suited connector when there are more than 3 players or I try to stole the BB ...

I play it really passiv, I I have a possibility of flush or draw I check and call really small raise or fold ...

I play them raise or fold, limp is too weak. When you raise and somebody calls you know exactly where you are and if you don't hit the flop it's an easy fold. Let's imagine you limp from middle position with 9-10. you play against blinds.Flop is 5-J-10 e.g. And you never know what is your opponents' hands so you'll probably have to fold or you can put a lot of money in a bank you'll loose. If you raise you steal the blinds or if there's a call you make a small bet (or even play check-fold) on flop and take the money, if not, it's an easy fold for you.
All in all, when you raise only AA, AK, KK, AQ, QQ, JJ you're too easy to read. You must mix hands you're playing and bet the same on pre-flop. If somebody doesn't believe that...actually, it's not me saying this but Dan Harrington in his book. Smile

i just call such cards, not always, maybe if they are suited, but i like when it hits a straight or a full house, then i play extremely badass and check Smile

It's all about position baby!!

Obviously if you're looking down at 69s or so in the BB, and you get a tasty flop, you're gonna kill with them Evil

Out of position, quick fold.

I like to play these cards (but only when i play freerolls) betting preflop same way i do when i have good cards.
The rest depends on the flop.
I do this cause often if low cards appear at the flop your opponents may think you missed it (because of your high bet). it's just a trick i do in initial phases of freerolls when you can find every kind of players and i have no patience to wait good cards

i think its a good chance to beat big cards. if i look a a fr-table if 5-7 limpers and i give 50% of them picture -cards then they steal each other the outs. if there is a low-card flop you are on the right way...
yesterday i saw a guy calling 4BB raise by A-A with 7-4 preflop... on the river ( low -card) A-A got all-in and the 7-4limper got his straight on turn.. s**t happens.. Blink

If your playing 6max, you should be raising suited connectors. Depending on tables, I generally raise JTs from UTG then loosen the closer to the btn I get. These hands have massive flop potenial and you can always cbet 2nd pair with any Ace or King on the board as your opponents will weight your raising range towards the Ace or King not to mention leading out on Flush draws or straight draws. This is very profitable and you can always fold if reraised. But if your going to cbet the flop always cbet the turn regardless of what it is. IMO Thumbs Up

Mhhh. You should consider with what type of hand your opponent had called your flop bet.

I agree, but number of times you get folk floating the flop with hands like 99 or 88 etc... but yes consider the texture of the board, but I would still cbet flop and turn with 2nd pair oR FD SD. Not so much J77 OR T22 etc... Like I said you miss profit if you don't and you can alway flod to a reraise as you know your crushed. Thumbs Up

I like to play them aggressively and hope for a lucky flop against a big hand Smile especially in late possition so i can act last and represent a big hand if i miss or semibluff with a straight draw or a flush draw... so aggressive is the way to go with suited connector in my opinion Big Smile

I like also playing low cards with suited, but if my opponent keeps on raising and there's highcards on board and i don't have nothing i'll fold!
