Texas Holdem – How to Play K10


Popularly called Katie(King Ten) or KT is a good hand to have as your starting poker hand. But it shouldn’t be overestimated as ten is just the borderline where the tail starts. More often than not, it is a good hand to fold and just observe the action but sometimes it can be playable based on your position and chip stack.

Only play in late position

The best poker tip for Katie is to play it only if in the cutoff or button positions. If you are hijack and are above table average in chips then you can play this hand. But any poker strategy will tell you to fold this hand and not call for trouble if playing it from early or middle position. Especially when discussing with respect to online poker, King Ten can simply be checked also when in big blind and everyone calls. But otherwise, do not call King ten simply because you like the look of the cards.

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.
