Texas Holdem – How to Play QQ

Pocket queens (QQ) are without doubt the prettiest starting poker hands. They are the third highest starting hands in Texas hold’em and should be given due respect while playing.

Don’t get into a raising war

Raising pre-flop especially when in position is surely the way to play them in online poker. If you raise out of position then chances are you run into a re-raise and chances are its aces or kings. That becomes tricky and if someone decides to follow an aggressive poker strategy and raise again, then it is an all out war and chances are your queens will go down. So never get married to your cards, weigh your position and decide to raise is the best poker tip for pocket queens.

Never limp in with queens

Even when playing against tight players, never limp in with queens. Limping in will always run you into trouble with queens. It is a big hand but very vulnerable and if you don’t raise and get the chasers out of the way, there is a 45% chance that you will see an over card on the flop.

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.
