Tough Hands You Need to Watch Out For

Free Online Poker Games
Here are some Texas Holdem Poker hands that are a bit touch to handle and could cause you some trouble. Watch yourself and don't get caught off-guard with these hands.

Texas Holdem Poker is a terrific game, but there seems to be quite a few risky hands that can lead new players into a false sense of security. Don't let yourself be tricked and avoid the below hands to guarantee that you'll have long lasting success in poker.

I would say that a hand of face cards and low cards together have to be the word card combinations that cause players into losing tons of cash. For whatever reason, when new players see a face card they instantly think they have a good hand. I hate to break it to you, but those Q-2 and J-3 hands aren't very good. You need to watch out when a King or Ace drops, alone these cards aren't very good.

The listed pockets will time and time again get to new players. What's even worse, is that when the game is getting tough and you could really use a good hand, players look at these and assume they have a good hand. Unfortunately, this is not true, and putting these cards into play when you're backed against the wall is one of the worst moves you can make.

There's something else you need to watch out for, and these are coin flip hands. Basically a coin flip hand is a hand where after the cards are delt you have about a 50/50 chance to win or lose, based on those cards. The reason a hand like this is dangerous is because you're essentially relying on pure luck to snatch up that pot.

Try and avoid playing hands like this. Players should be going into a poker game with their focus on skill and probability, and be certain (as close as you can get) they are going to win. Relying solely on luck to win a hand is like placing a gun to your temple and playing Russian roulette.
