Our poker tutorial is a great way to learn the card game loved by millions.

Hey, I’m Nicky Numbers, a Professional Poker Player, whose going to talk to you today, about the best starting hands in poker. Now, when most people are talking about poker, they mean No Limit Hold Em. The best starting hands in that game are, big cards, and big pairs. So, hands like Ace, King. Especially Ace, King, suited are incredibly valuable.

This is a true, premium hand. Another example would be pocket Queens. Any pocket pair of Tens, or higher, is going to be a premium one. Hands like Ace, Queen, are also incredibly valuable, because they flop top pair regularly. Ace, King, for example, flops top pair, 30 percent of the time. Big pocket pairs have tremendous value because often they’re an over pair to the board, and when they’re not an over pair to the board, sometimes they flop sets, which are really strong hands. A set is when you have a pocket pair, and then a third card that matches these two, comes on the board, so, you have three of a kind. Now, these are traditionally thought of as the categories of hands that are premium holdings. Pocket Tens are better, Ace, King, Ace, Queen. You only get dealt one of these hands, 4.7 percent of the time. That’s about once, every other round, if there’s ten people at your table. So, these are infrequent occurrences. If this is all you play, you’re going to end up playing way too tight. There are other hands that also play well in No Limit Hold Em, and have tremendous value. And the deeper stacked you get, meaning the more big blinds you have, the better these other hands will play.

Hands like pocket Deuces. A pocket pair is going to flop two pair, or better, about 12 percent of the time. It’s an incredibly powerful hand, and the most likely hand of any, to flop a monster, pocket pairs. Another valuable hand is suited connectors, cards that are directly connected to each other, and are of the same suit. So, they’re sequential, like, Six, Seven. Another example, would be a suited one gapper, like Seven, Five, or, a suited two gapper, like Seven, Four. Cards that have no gaps, and are directly connected, have one gap, or two gaps, and are suited, have tremendous play ability in No Limit Hold Em. For example, a true suited connector, like, Four, Five suited through Jack, Ten suited, is going to hit the flop to make a big hand, or a draw of Eight outs or more, about a quarter of the time. On the surface, it looks like you only have Seven high, but these cards work tremendously well together, and create a synergy that results in the hands having a lot of value in their ability to continue passed the flop. Another example, is a suited Ace, like Ace, Six, or Ace, Deuce.

These cards work in a very similar way to suited connectors, suited one gappers, and suited two gappers. Basically, you want to play hands that are able to continue pass the flop, regularly. And when I say continue pass the flop, regularly, I mean continue pass the flop in a comfortable way. Imagine having a hand on the flop, and your opponent makes a bet, and you’re comfortable continuing to call, or raise. Imagine being on the flop, and making a bet, and your opponent raises you. And you’re able to comfortably continue by calling that raise, or, even re-raising them back. That’s what you’re looking for when you’re picking hands, pre-flop. Hands that interact with the flop in multiple ways, and are often able to continue passed the flop, and regularly go to show down.

  1. I love this video. The more people playing A6 suited the better.

    Not for them of course, for me. Cracking way to piss money up the wall. "Its suited", the mating cry of the donk.

  2. What the hell are y’all talking about? I only know that if you get a pair, two pairs, high card, flush, straight, four of a kind, three of a kind you can win. What do you mean off suited? Dueses? Guys help imma play poker next week with some buddies😂

  3. I made the mistake of folding 4 – 8 non suited the other night when I wasn’t part of the blind. The flop was 8 – 8 – queen 🤦‍♂️😂. Would have won with triple 8’s. The guys who called or raised had won with 2 pair. Ended up losing my buy in two hands later when the small blind of $40 made me go all in with a 3 – 7.

  4. Million Dollar Potential in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself. The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It’s for this reason I invented Ruvol where every game is always challenging and exciting to play.


    Ruvol is played somewhat like chess. I purposely invented Ruvol to give chess a direct “apple-to-apple” competition.

    Like chess, Ruvol is played by two players. It uses a board that is rectangular in shape but containing more number of squares than chess. Like chess, it has equal number of pieces on each side of the board, where each type of piece moves in distinct ways. However, if the way to win chess is to checkmate the opponent’s king, the way to win Ruvol is to be able to cross a designated line.

    But there’s one biggest advantage Ruvol has over chess that makes Ruvol a very challenging game to play. What is this? Unlike chess, the Ruvol pieces are randomly placed at the start of every game which makes it impossible for any clever player to memorize the moves. Fischer Random Chess, also known as Chess960, likewise introduced a random set up, but with many exceptions. Ruvol is 100% random.

    At present, there is no other board game in the world within the same category of chess “where chess players can switch to.” Chess is totally a monopoly in its class. With the coming of Ruvol, chess has finally found its match!


    In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$3 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$2.4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale of Ruvol is US$24M.


    For the reason that I don’t have the resources to publish Ruvol on a global scale, I find it “wiser” to simply sell my copyright.

    If you’re interested to buy my copyright, email me your BEST PRICE OFFER—[the copyright goes to the most reasonable bid]. My email address is: [Or perhaps you can help me find a buyer, and I’ll reward you with a commission.]

    Thanks and God bless!
