It is and is not a hand that should be played in a league game.

Yes, every hand will win a % of the time, but I DO NOT want to be results oriented.

When playing poker, I want to make the best decision that I can, at a given point in time based on all the information that I have about the hand.

This is what we call luck. Yes poker is made of luck, but this hand is clearly not profitable. Have you think that any Kx card would split pot, and KA would have eat you up!

Playing hand like that will make you quit tournament fast 90% of the time. Yes 10% you will probably go a little bit longer than usual.

Go read the courses here. You will learn what poker is really made of. Mathematics first, luck second.

Hope to see you in Open Skill League!
