1. If you are new to poker you may be asking yourself, "What is a good hand?"

There are obvious amazing hands to be dealt such as a pair of aces or king-ace draw, but much of what determines how good your hand in depends on your position at the table. The best and most lenient position at the poker table is the dealer position. As the dealer, you are able to see all other bets before deciding if you would like to bet as well. The small blind position is the most difficult position to play because you are the first to bet.


2. So what hands should you play at each position?


3. Small Blind / Big Blind (worst position):

You should definitely play pairs A-A, K-K, Q-Q, and J-J no matter what.

You can also play hands A-K, A-Q, A-J, K-Q, K-J, Q-J, and J-10 as long as they are of the same suit.

You may also consider playing hands A-K, A-Q, and K-Q even if they are not of the same suit.


If you are the small blind and do not have any of these hands you should absolutely fold. If you are the big blind and the bet is not raised prior to the flop, you can obviously play any hand you like because you are checking anyway and not betting anything extra to see the flop.

Middle Position (The 3 players that bet directly after the big and small blind players):

In addition to the previously discussed hands, you can also play A-10, K-10, and Q-10 as long as they are of the same suit.

You can also play hands that include two face cards even if they are not of the same suit.

You may also consider playing pair hands 10-10, 9-9, and 8-8.

Late Position (The last 4 players to bet):

In addition to the previously discussed hands, you can also play connector cards such as 9-10, 7-8, all the way down to 2-3 as long as the cards are of the same suit.

You can also play any pair as long as the bet is not raised prior to the flop.

You may also consider playing any hand that includes an ace as long as the cards are of the same suit.

Although it may be tempting to play hands other than those we just discussed, the odds are stacked against you that another player will have a better hand. In the long run it is best to fold more often than you call so you don't give away your chips playing bad hands.
