OK, we all know the superior starting hands in Texas Hold ‘Em. However, just how good are they? The top five hands, AA, KK, QQ, JJ, and AK, represent 2% of all possible starting hands and yet produce 50% of wins. How about the next tier? TT, 99, AQ, AJ, AT, AK, AQ, KQ, and KJ represent only 4% of starting cards and win 30% of the time. Summing it up, these starting 14 cards, or only 6% of hole cards dealt, win 80% of the time.
