Texas Hold'em Hands

Aug 18, 2007
In the game of Texas Hold'em it is important that all players understand just what are the best and worst kinds of hands (set of cards) that they can hold.

Certainly knowing what are the best and worst kinds of Texas Hold'em hands a player is holding will help them go along way to improving their game and therefore helping them maximize their chances of actually winning and so making money.

In this article we will take a look at some of the various kinds of hands which are considered to be the best or worst that a player can have at anyone time when participating in a game of Texas Hold'em.

Some of the best hands that a player can find that they have during such poker games are as follows:

Ace-Ace
- This is the best hand that any poker player could hope to have in his hand and will help you to win more games than any other hand during a game will do.

King-King
- Although this hand is still incredibly strong when playing in Texas Hold'em it certainly is not able to dominate a game in the same way that Ace-Ace can and will be beaten easily if a player holds such cards in their hands.

Ace-King
- Yet another very strong hand but in order to win with this kind of hand the player needs to know that the flop is working for them rather than against them. This will then hopefully provide them with a further Ace or King which will make their position and hand within the game much stronger. Plus it is better if you have the Ace and King from the same suit (suited) if at all possible as these are much stronger than those that are unsuited (not from the same suit).

Queen-Queen
- This hand is strong when a player is competing against others whose hands only contain jacks or lower. But should another player being holding either of the above hands we have mentioned then this hand is not going to be able to help the player in winning the game at all.

Whilst the types of hands that you should not consider playing with when competing in any tournaments or games of Texas Hold'em are as follows:

Ace-Low Card which are Unsuited
- Often when a player first starts taking part in Texas Hold'em games they will think that this is a good hand to hold on to. Unfortunately although it is an okay hand and may win you a game occasionally it should not be relied upon especially when a raise has been played by any of the previous players.

Face and Lower Card which are Unsuited
- Again as with the above mentioned this kind of Texas Hold'em hands is likely to cause you to lose more than win. So at all costs as soon as you see another player raising the ante in the middle it is best to fold rather than lose any more.
