    Overplaying PP

    Has anyone overplayed a small pocket pair and lost a lot of their chips. How do you stop your self from doing that

    Small pocket pairs are easier to release than bigger ones.

    My basic rule is, even if it's AA, I am not married to this hand.

    I will release pocket pairs in an instant if I feel like I am beat.

    Dont play roulette with your pocket pairs. When ya get em I dont suggest overplaying preflop, as he said before dont marry your hand because it looks nice watch the flop turn river individually and play the hand out as you would any other. You should also always watch your position when playing them 77 UTG is going to get you into alot more trouble then the button, also watch what people are betting before you if the utg+2 just 3 raised your jj is likely even in jeopardy.

    IMO to many people these days see pocket pairs and dump to much in the middle to early.

    Not only that, I think AK is the single biggest mistake people make.

    AK IS NOTHING

    I know it's a flip, but man it seems like I lose more with AK than any other hand (But don't get me started on TT - JJ)

    Well hands change all depending on your play style, I have a buddy who will shove pre flop with AA everytime the rest of the table lets him get it in the middle. He can be 2 places from in the money or doubled up live and it will get shoved. IMO if you shove good hands preflop or even mediocre hands its worse then playing blackjack, just as they call it its a coinflip . Play hands throughout the three cards, thats why theres a turn river and not just 5 cards dropped on the table.

    Personally my favorite hand is 10 J suited it has so many outs for nut hands j high straights ace high straights flushes two pairs. PP are some of my least favorite hands due to the fact there so stuck where they started unless you hit a paired flop or your crap selection of outs.

    I try not to go overboard with my small pocket pairs because I never flop a set. Ever.

    I think you hit a set 11% of the time or so, so never say never
