I didn't say they weren't playable in SH. It's critical to remember that hard and fast rules don't exist. Starting hand guides are just that - guides, not rule books.
Yeah i know, but i still understand why they are better LH vs SH...i just seem to always get outdrawn in LH with them...maybe i need to bet harder on them? But thats betting completely on a draw

Betting on a draw can be strong play: it depends on the specifics of the situation.

Ok, don't take this the wrong way but I think you're getting your knickers in a twist, so I'll simply refer you to David Sklansky's Theory of Poker, which strips the game down to its bare essentials and builds from there.

Trust me - you'll be doing yourself an enormous favour by buying it, reading it, rereading it, rerereading it etc. I've had the book for over a year and still dip into it over and over again.
