LOL TJs can only make one kind of flush while AA can make two

I like any hand that turns into a boat on the flop.

It wouldn't hurt to joke around some AOE.

I was just making a statement, that's all. Maybe I need to use some smiley faces more often to show I'm not being a hard-ass? I just get a kick out of players that say "Oh, my favorite hand" and show you garbage. It's usually the same players that bet with a three and say "three's have been hot all night so it was a good bet."

There are certainly other hands I like a lot other than aces, but if given the choice of folding one of two hands, one being aces, what would you play? I have never seen the player with the first pick in fantasy football take the 10th best quarterback because that player is his favorite. You start with the best you can get, however a sport like football is different than poker. Why anyone would prefer to start with an inferior hand instead of the best possible scenario is interesting to say the least.

I always say to people who represent KT or some other hand as their "favorite" that they are lying (in a joking manner), that I know and you know and every one else knows it's pocket aces.

Well. Yeah. But, as poker players, we find that truth to be self evident.

You're just too analytical for your own good AOE.

Maybe it's because your posts come off as condescending and naturally defensive. There's nothing wrong with being partial to memorable hands other than premium hands.

Too analytical for my own good? I thought this was a poker forum and not some club based on popularity? I'm just telling it like it is man.

As you see from this thread, there's virtually no poker talk besides various memorable hands.
