Starting Poker Hands
by: Kelsi Guidry




There are a few strong hands which can be played from any position (http://www.pokerwants.com/position.php) at the table. It is not often that you will get them, but when you do, you have an advantage preflop (http://www.pokerwants.com/preflop.php). The following are considered average starting hands for a 8-10 man table.

When you are at a table with 7-5 you can play starting hands as if you were in the better position. For example, If you are in middle position, you can play the cards that we suggest for the late position. In early position, the cards from mid position can be used.

When you are the big blind, small blind, and the following two players, you are in early position.

Playable hands in early position

Pairs: Nines through aces

Suited: Aces with a king, queen, jack, or ten
King with a queen, or jack
Queen with a jack or ten
Jack with a ten or nine
Ten with a nine.

Unsuited: Aces with a king, queen, jack, or ten
King with a queen or jack
Queen with a jack

When you are fifth, sixth, or seventh player to act you are in middle position and can play more hands if the pot has not been raised.

Playable hands in middle position

Pairs: Eights through Sixes

Suited: Aces with a nine, or eight
King with a ten to eight
Queen with a nine or eight
Jack with an eight
Ten with an eight
Nine with an eight

Unsuited: Ace with a nine
King with a ten
Queen with a ten
Jack with a ten

When you are in late position, you are last or one-before-last. Because of this, you can add more starting hands. These hands should only be played if the pot has not been raised. If the flop does not give much strength with one of the lower starting hands, you must fold it.

Playable hands in late position

Pairs: Fives through deuces

Suited: Aces with a seven, six, five, four, three, or two
King with a seven, six, five, four, three, or two
Jack with a seven
Ten with a seven or six
Nine with a seven or six
Eight with a seven or six
Seven with a six or five
Six with a five
Five with a four

Unsuited: King with a nine
Queen with a nine
Jack with a nine or eight
Ten with a nine or eight
Nine with an eight or seven

If your or new to the game or have been playing for a long time, some of these recommendations may seem tight. They are not, they may even be considered to be loose.
