Playing Texas hold’em, you have been dealt two holecards. Now you have to make the most important decision: whether to invest or not at this start. I always teach my senior poker classes to use the Hold’em Algorithm. It makes decisions easier – and less stressful.
I think our readers may be interested in opportunities not to be handled as the best starting hand. Mike Caro’s Hold’em Starting Hand Distribution Chart is described in his book, “Caro’s Most Profitable Hold’em Advice”.
The 20 best starting hands in a row are in the box on the right. Caro presents the opportunity not to deal with each of these hands visit Evodomino, or the better hand. I will add to my assessment of these three main groups.
The odds shown refer to the probability (odds) of being dealt the cards – or better. For example, you can expect an Aces pocket, Kings pocket or Queens pocket in the hole, after every 73 hands dealt. With 30-35 hands dealt per hour that will occur (on average) about once every two hours of play. Patience!
It is noteworthy that all of the 20 best cards listed meet the Hold’em Algorithm criteria for all positions, including starting positions; and hence preflop can be played. Caro’s chart goes beyond this first 20 to 169 which may be different starting hands. There are many combinations that can be played depending on position and other factors. Rather than trying to memorize these, it’s much easier to use the Hold’em Algorithm, and quickly add, in your head, the scores for your greeting cards to easily decide if they can be played.
