Worst Ten Starting Hands

Below we have listed the worst ten starting hands (in Texas Hold’em Poker), being listed in the worst ten starting hands doesn’t mean you can’t win with them but it is highly unlikely you will.

1. 2-7
Off suited this is the worst of the worst, nothing cant beat it in terms of it’s low ranking status, if you are dealt it you know what to do.

2. 2-8
Another hideous starting hand, this hand ain’t going to make you rich

3. (Equal) 3-8 & 3-7
These two hands take joint third place as they are as bad as each other.

4. 2-6
By looking at in the novice player may think they are onto a straight but in reality this is not a good starting hand at all.

5. Equal 2-9, 3-9, & 4-9
Another joint position this time it’s the three starting hands above, they are three of the worst you can be dealt.

6. 2-10
This hand did make Doyle Brunson a winner of two World Series of Poker Bracelets, so you may think they are strong but they are not the best and are certainly ranked the worst

7. 5-9
The dolly parton hand, this hand is most commonly folded than played

8. Equal 4-7, 4-8, 5-8, 3-6
Not much to look at and not very strong to play these hands make it into the top ten of worst starting hands in joint ninth position

9. Picture/Face card plus a low card, unsuited
Don’t think this hand is strong as it is once of the worst hands.

10. Ace plus a low card, unsuited
An Ace is good however combined with a low unsuited card its strength is seriously diluted, fold,fold,fold
