Analysis and play of 6 types of hands of the same suit (Part 1)


In German poker games, there are often situations where the hands are of the same suit. The following will analyze the strength of six different hand cards of the same suit and the strategies that should be adopted.

1 Starting big hands of the same suit

(ATs-AKs, KQs, KJs)
This is a good starting hand regardless of the number of opponents and styles. It can often form the biggest pair or a big flush and win a lot of chips. You get this starting hand. If no one raises, you have to raise. If the table is tight and your position is higher, you can just call to induce more players to join the game. Be careful when you get AJs, ATs, KQs, KJs and someone in front of you raises, you may be eaten by the raiser. But you can call if he raises frequently or if many people have already joined the game. When you get AKs and AQs, you can fight against tight-raise players.

About tight-raise players: Any tight-raise player needs a high-level starting hand to Raise. Some tight-raise players will be aware of the role of position. He will reduce the requirements for the starting hand of Raise because of the advantage of position, especially when he is the first to enter the game. If you have AJs, this type of player raises after you, and you have to fold if the pot is not too big. If you have AJs and this type of player raises before you, you have to re-raise. At this time, his cards are much worse than when he was in the back position.

There is also a type of tight-raise player. They will not change their betting strategy with the change of position. This type of player is passive and passive. They will only have very, very good cards (maybe only in AA, KK, QQ). When he raises you have AJs, you have to fold regardless of position. Because his cards are much stronger than yours.

2 Starting small cards of the same suit

(QJs, KTs, QTs, JTs)
This is a good starting hand. The pair of small starting hands of the same suit is not as strong as the big starting hands of the same suit, but the small starting hands of the same suit are better than those of the same suit. Big hands have a high chance of forming a straight, and sometimes they will make a big flush and win a lot of chips.

It is precisely because it has a higher chance of forming a straight than a pair. When your opponent is weak, even if you are in a bad position, the profit is good.

When no one raises when you are in the upper pocket poker position, you just need to call, which can induce more people behind to call. When you are late, you have to raise no matter how many people call. Because you will form a flush, your profit is good when the pot is large. When someone raises, you have to call while making sure that the pot is big enough.
