    i just read a short article about starting hand,i am gonna share it for myself and who wants to know the odds of starting hands winners





    There are a total of 1326 starting hands in Texas Holdem poker, this is calculated by taking 1 of the original 52 card deck and then one of the remaining 51 cards:




    (1/52)*(1/51) = 1326 combinations.




    If we leave aside the different combinations of suits then these can be reduced to 169 distinct starting hands. 13 of these are pairs, 78 are suited unpaired cards and the remaining 78 are unsuited unpaired cards.




    The cards that you are dealt affect the probability of your opponent having the same holding. For example if you are dealt an Ace before the flop there are only 3 remaining aces in the deck – the chances of an opponent holding an ace has been reduced by 25%.




    The table below shows the odds of being dealt specific strength holdings before the flop.




    A-A (220/1 or 0.45%)


    A-K (81.9/1 or 1.1%)


    A-A, K-K, Q-Q or 10-10 (54.3/1 or 1.8%)


    Any Pocket Pair (16:1 or 6.25%)


    Any 2 Cards Jack or Higher (10.1/1 or 9.05%)





    The relative strength of pre-flop hands in heads-up poker can be calculated by assuming that your opponent has a random holding. That is to say that the chances your hand will win a showdown if all the chips went in to the middle immediately can be ranked in terms of your holding compared to the whole range of your opponent’s possible cards.




    The table below gives the pre-flop odds of selected head-up poker hands




    A-A, wins 84.93% of the time.


    K-K, wins 82.12% of the time


    Q-Q, wins 79.63% of the time.


    J-J, wins, 77.15% of the time


    A-K (suited), wins 64.47% of the time


    K-Q (not suited), wins 60.43% of the time.


    J-10 (suited) wins 56.15% of the time


    K-4 (not suited) wins 50.23% of the time


    Hands below K-4 off suit are not favorite before the flop…
    the very worst hand 2-3 (not suited) wins only 29.24% of the time

    As you will see from the table below, pairs increase in value in the rank of starting hands for heads-up play. You will only be dealt a pair once in every 17 deals meaning that the chance of both players holding a pair is approximately (17*17) = 289/1. Any pair is a favorite against a non-paired hand before the flop. Having just a single opponent means that higher pairs are extremely unlikely.

    and here are top starting hands in HU that is deffrente from full table rankings

    1 – A-A
    2 – K-K
    3 – Q-Q
    4 – J-J
    5 – 10-10
    6 – 9-9
    7 – 8-8
    8 – A-K (suited)
    9 – 7-7
    10 – A-Q (suited)
    11 – A-J (suited)
    12 – A-K (not suited)
    13 – A-10 (suited)
    14 – A-Q (not suited)
    15 – A-J (not suited)
    16 – K-Q (suited)
    17 – 6-6
    18 – A-9 (suited)

    i liked this thing i read some where,so true


    Think of playing heads up like being in an argument. In every relationship there is usually a dominant person and a submissive person. If both parties are dominant then most likely the relationship will not work out. The same goes for heads up poker. There is usually an aggressive player that dominates the other player and gets his or her way (which is to win). In the case of two aggressive players playing heads up, the game is usually much more exciting, but it is also a much shorter game.


    This brings us to our next point. Let's say you are an aggressive player, but you end up losing every time you play against another aggressive player. Every time you raise he raises, and it seems like there is never a bet that is just called. What can you do to take down these difficult opponents? While reading some strategy articles on the web today I came across a great article that discusses Tight Aggressive Texas Holdem Poker. The article makes gives some great pointers on how to tighten up your game while staying aggressive.


    How does all of this tie into heads up poker? Everything you read about heads up poker always tells you to be aggressive. What if your aggressiveness causes you to lose every game you play because you get called when you have a K-10 by someone with an A-2 who ends up catching an ace? This may mean you should tighten up your game while staying aggressive. Narrow your starting hands down to just the top ten heads up poker starting hands. If you play only those hands and fold the rest, you will improve your win percentage against other aggressive players.


    Consider an aggressive heads up player to be a wolf looking for a kill. Don't give him a chance to take your chips. If you want to be a tight and aggressive heads up poker player then you need to play hands which you would feel comfortable going all in with. I like to call it the "put up or shut up" approach. Keep in mind that you need not apply this strategy if your opponent is not an aggressive player, but only if you find yourself up against a blood thirsty, aggressive, head hunting opponent.

    ok i study the tables format in poker stars and i am gonna make some changes for my bankroll build,i am gonna stick to the plan,like i said but playing 3.5 heads up games untill i i get to 50 buy ins so that means 175 dollar and the reson behind that is there are like 4 player 3.5 dollars that winner takes all like 13.5 dollars and i did beat those game before softly,and then start playing 7 dollar heads up game untill 550 dollars so that makes me stick to 7 dollar more and like 80 bui ins
    the reason i am gonna play 7 dollars more becuase there are 16 and 4 and 32 man games SNGs in poker stars that winning one of them can boost my bankroll
