Low Pocket Pairs are for the Birds!

By: Soldierbound @ 15:13 (EST) / 141 / Comment ( 0 )

Many of times have i came across this situation,  Sitting there with a low pocket pair, we'll say 66.  The flop comes, its K 2 10.  When in this situation, you know what you're suppose to do.  Since there are 2 cards higher than your pocket pair, most players would fold.  Not me, i continue playing with donk motivation, hoping to hit another 6 on the last  2 cards.  Ending up losing.  Now, i'm not sure if its just the beauty of having matching pairs sitting in your corner, or if its just the possibility of "just maybe".  Either way i have lost many of hands with low pocket pairs, and have came to the conclusion that Low pocket pairs are for the birds!
