      Hi there,
      I'm a new member on pokerstrategy and only recently started playing on partypoker in .05/.10 FL tables. My question is that on the starting hands chart for very strong hands it has the top 3 pairs AA KK QQ then / AKS AKo, does this mean that all 3 pairs are stronger than AKs and AKo and why is it that these are valued above the strong hands like JJ/TT etc which are already potentially "made" hands? Also why is the suggestion raise on AKo or s instead of call considering that you will likely not hit pair or better on the flop.

      Thanks!
