Playing or not playing, that’s the question.
The inexperience, the number of chips, fear and even insecurity in ourselves, sometimes makes us not play a good game of poker.

The first two cards you receive are those that make you decide whether to bet or not and how much to do. However, do you think you always make the right decisions?
On many occasions, especially the most novice, they tend to underestimate their preflop cards and retire almost before they start. In the same way that two aces will not win you forever, a pair of fives will not make you lose all your games either.
To help you in those moments of doubt, we have made a selection of undervalued poker hands, so maybe next time you’ll think twice before retiring.

– Couple of fives
– J9 same color
– 98
– 75 same color
– 73
– Conclusions

Couple of fives
Obviously a couple of this type does not give the same security as one of aces, but its value should not be underestimated in excess.
Let’s imagine the following situation:
– Player 1 receives two aces in the first hand.
– Player 2 receives two fives on the first hand.
Player 2 decides to bet and 1 without hesitation accepts the bet in preflop. The flop is shown and two fives and a king appear on the table. The bets continue as the two players are convinced of their possibilities. At the end of all betting rounds, player 2 wins with fives poker.
It is true that it is a very favorable situation for player 2, but this or another similar one can occur.

J9 same color
Within the tables of probabilities the J9 is usually placed as a regular hand pulling bad, but why?
If you have a hand of J9 in the preflop, our advice is that you definitely see the flop. With J9 you have the option of matching, color and ladder.

If you receive 98 of the same color as the starting hand, you should know that you are more likely to win than someone with AQ or A5.
In addition, with 98 of hand you can choose to win in high card or in pairs, and even make the ladder as Matt Damon does in the end of Rounders. You never know when luck may be on your side, so why not try?

75 same color
If Bond beats Le Chiffre at Casino Royale, you can too. Agent 007 shows us once again that we should not underestimate the value of our cards.
With an unbeatable poker face, since no one can know what he is thinking, agent Bond wins in a single game the whopping of more than 100 million dollars.
Yes, it is true that it is a movie, so this is our advice: if the big blind of the game is a million dollars, think twice before raising the bet.

It is probably one of the hands that you would never play.
Although this is always included in the list of less strong hands, sometimes chance can be on your side.
We do not know how lucky you will be if you bet with this hand, but if you can afford to go, you have the option to win with a straight. However, check before the bets of the other players at the table.

Check the number of opponents you face and assess what options you have before playing. We want to encourage you to bet, not to waste your money.

In addition to the hand, the position you have inside the table is important. You will not act in the same way if you are the first or the last to speak, since the information you will have will not be the same.
We do not recommend that you do all in as long as you have one of these hands, what we mean is that you go to see the flop and continue if you think it may be worth it.
Remember that with a single bet (preflop), you can know the value of more than 2/3 of the cards.

If you are not very convinced of going to the flop, look at the cost involved. If the bets are not very high, go ahead and think that it can be a good investment.
