  4. All bad hands are just bad hands. It's not a competition.

  6. The worst hand in poker is a good starting hand you lose a lot of chips with because you get entitlement tilt. Saw it again at the WSOP. One guy has two kings, his opponent have Ace-4… the guy with Ace-4 makes two pairs and plays them like he have two pairs and barrel it off. The guy with two kings seems oblivious to the obvious… There's an ace on the board, you don't need to call over and over just to be convince only at showdown when your opponent shows you that he did have an ace.

    The amusing thing here is… If you have king queen and your opponent have ace-4…. you will get away from your pair of king much more easily if there is both an ace and a king on board. It is only when you have pocket kings that your decision become very dumb and you want to remain steadfast in your belief that you opponent keeps barreling it off just to annoy you. That he doesn't have an ace and will show you some random suited connector that have nothing to do with the board if you call him off.

    So pocket kings is the worst starting hand for people with entitlement tilt. They are so convinced it is a good starting hand that they will straight out refuse to admit there is a possibility that the ace on the board have made your opponent a pair of ace. I think you can never get as much value from second pair as when your opponent have pocket kings and refuse to admit it's a hand that can be defeated post-flop unless you are cheating in some ways.

    Now, 2-7 off-suit, you cannot ever get entitlement tilt with it and you cannot lose a lot of chips if it doesn't make anything significant. It makes a pair of 7 or a pair of deuces, you won't go broke calling it off.
