Top 10 Worst Starting Hands in Texas Holdem

Sure
you know that a pair of aces are the best hand in Texas Holdem
but do you know the worst starting hands? Knowing that these hands are almost-always-foldem hands in holdem is just as important to improving your poker game and not playing like a donkey.
Some of these worst hands are bad in the same way and will lose at about the same rate
so Ive called them ties
even when one is a slightly better hand.
1. 2-7
7-2 off suit is considered the worst hand in Texas Hold’em. They are the lowest two cards you can have that cannot make a straight (there’s 4 cards between 2 and 7). Even if they are suited
they will make you a very low flush
and if either pairs
it’s an awfully low hand. Because it is the worst
some players will play it for fun and in online games
it is known as “the hammer.”
2. 2-8
This is the same basic problem as above
only you’ve got an 8 instead of a 7. Still pretty bad for a high card. Suited or not
this is a fold’em hold’em hand.
3. 3-8 & 3-7
The 3 makes this hand able to beat the two above it
but with the 3-8 you still can’t make a straight and the 3-7 still
well
just sucks.
4. 2-6
While
if the board gives you a miracle flop of 3-4-5
you will have a straight
someone with a 6-7 will have a higher straight. If you get a flush
someone will probably have a higher flush. Against even 4 players
this hand will lose about 90% of the time. Not good odds.
5. 2-9
3-9 & 4-9 (tie)
The only thing these three hands have going for them over the hands above is the 9.
If the 9 pairs
you’ll have a middle pair that could still be beat by anyone holding pocket 10s
jacks
queens
kings
or aces
yet you might be fooled by a board filled with low cards into thinking you have the best hand and losing a lot of money.
No straights can fill the gap between these cards
either. Beware.
6. 2-10
This hand has a legendary quality because Doyle Brunson captured two World Series of Poker Bracelets with it. But it’s not a good hand — Doyle Brunson is one of the all-time best in the game and unless you’re a Texas road gambler who’s logged thousands of hours at the table
you shouldn’t try and win with the Doyle Brunson.
7. 5-9
Another hand people play because it’s fun is the old 9 to 5
the “Dolly Parton.” If you’re playing to win
it’s not a good idea to play hands because they have a funny name. That may be how you pick the winning horse in a race
but poker’s a marathon
not a sprint
and over the long term there’s no doubt this hand is a statistical loser.
8. 4-7
4-8
5-8
3-6… (tie)
All these hands will rarely win
especially unsuited.
Toss ’em. Just toss’em. Yes
even in the little blind.
If you see two low cards in the hole
unless you’re in the big blind and you can see the flop for free
fold.
9. Face card + low card (unsuited)
One of the most common mistakes I see beginners make is that when they see any paint in their hand
they play it. J-2
Q-3
K-4 whatever — and most of these hands are losers. They’re junk that may win a few pots
but more often will lose you huge cash when you find the other player has a higher kicker and the winning hand.
10. Ace + low card (unsuited)
This is another common beginner mistake
playing any ace. Again
it may win occasionally
and heads-up it’s a fine hand
but at a table of 4 or more
this hand shouldn’t be played if there’s a raise in front of you. You’re going to be outkicked a lot with Ace-little
and it’s going to feel like a kick in the junk when the other player shows their higher ace.

Poker

The origins of playing cards and poker are difficult to pin down. There are dozens of theories. Some say playing cards were developed by the Chinese as a variation on dominoes. In Europe
Tarot decks used for fortune telling are an obvious link in the lineage of the playing card. Gaming has been popular in every culture throughout history
so it is likely that different versions of the playing-card deck were developed independently by different cultures at different times.


Deck of playing cards

Early French settlers who came to New Orleans played a card game called poque
which involved bluffing and betting. Persian sailors
at port in New Orleans
taught the French settlers the Persian game called s
which uses decks of cards comprised of five suits. Most likely
these two games came to be melded together into one
and as travelers spread the game up the Mississippi River
they changed it to suit their own purposes. Con men who plied the riverboats adapted the game
using it to relieve their victims of their “poke
” or cash. At some point
this Anglicized version of the word poque became “poker.” The first written mention of “poker” was in 1834.
In the 1800s
the game quickly spread to the western frontier. The “wild west ” period of American history was a boom time for poker
with a poker table in almost every saloon.
Legendary Las Vegas casino owner Benny Binion decided to host a poker tournament for the best players in the world. In 1970
he held the first ever World Series of Poker . This $10
000 buy-in
no-limit Texas Hold’em game is now televised on ESPN.
Poker Basics
Right now is the best time to be a poker player. In fact
new players are entering into the game every day in large numbers. As more people seek opportunities to play poker
more poker rooms and Web sites are opening up. As a result
the coverage of poker on television and the number of books and amount of information made available increases
which in turn bring more players into the game. This cycle continues to feed itself so that the popularity of poker is now at an all-time high.
This article will cover many of the basics of poker — from rankings of poker hands to the card game’s terminology. But to put everything in its proper context
we’ll lead off with a quick primer on the history of poker.
Poker Origins
Many people were introduced to poker by seeing it played in the saloons in Western movies
and the poker game played was most often 5-Card Draw. Some people may also have heard stories of riverboat gamblers on the Mississippi River. For these reasons
a lot of people grew up believing poker began in America in the 1900s
and the only poker game ever played was 5-Card Draw. Actually
both assumptions are false.
The actual origin of poker is not known. Some say the Chinese played with cards as early as the tenth century a.d. In another part of the world
archaeologists recovered fragments of cardlike items dating to the twelfth or thirteenth century in Egypt. Of course
we don’t know what the Egyptians used these cards for
but it could have been the first form of poker. We do know that in the sixteenth century people in India played a game called Ganjifa
which used a deck of 96 cards; and in the seventeenth century the Persians played a five-player card game
which they called As Nas
using 25 cards in five suits.
The current 52-card deck is often credited to European countries. In the fifteenth century
France introduced the current suits of clubs
diamonds
hearts
and spades in a game called Poque. It is quite possible that the word “poker” is derived from that word. Others
however
claim that the word “poker” comes from the German card game pochspiel or the German game pochen
which dates back to the sixteenth century. Also
the British are credited with the introduction of games called “Brag” and “Faro
” which were played in many saloons in the Old West.
Eventually
poker migrated to the United States in the late eighteenth century and continued to spread throughout North America. Variations of poque called “draw” and “stud” became popular during the Civil War. These terms are still used today.
Next
we’ll move onto the fundamentals of playing the game
specifically the rankings of poker hands.
