Texas Holdem – How to Play AJ


The JackAss of the poker game is mostly underestimated but when played well can yield rewards. Ace and Jack (AJ) is always a regular in the top ten starting poker hands and a suited one will give you another 2 % edge.

Don’t go over the top

Ace Jack is a great hand, even unsuited, but it is never good enough to raise over the top. In fact, it is best to simply call/check the board with AJAX irrespective of your position. If you are raised then you can call provided you are in late position but never re-raise and try to push the other player down. Chances are you might be facing high pockets and your hand might not have the possibility to get the other stronger card to fold. Remember you only have a one in six chance of flopping your pair so smooth call your cards and pray.

When Played at Adda52

In the online poker Sunday Texas hold’em finals on 8th April, with blinds at 4/8, player jyojyo saw Jd Ac as suraj18588 in late position had a 8 of spades. None raised and five players saw the flop which was Kc 9h 4s and none had paired. jyojyo decided to take his chance and lose the chasers with a raise of double big blind. He was called by suraj18588 and rupalb who had 8d 10h who seemed to be heading nowhere. The turn was Ah and the top pair for two players. jyojyo again raised 16 and was called by suraj18588. The river was 4d and jyojyo now pressed harder and went all in to shirk of suraj18588 and win the pot. Thus proving that the best poker strategy is to be safe with Jackass and then play.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
