Which Pocket Pairs Should You Be Folding Pre-Flop?

A pocket pair in poker is always a good starting point for a hand. Rather than that annoying 9-3 or J-5, a player might feel like there’s some real hope in the hand. Knowing how to play these pairs is crucial to poker success.

Whether you’re dealt a big pair like Aces or Kings or a smaller hand like 9-9 or 6-6, these hands always offer a chance to collect some chips. It’s essential to understand the strength of these hands and how you should play them. 

There are many things to consider – from opponents and chip stacks to bet sizing and tournament level.
