AK and QQ at the Low Limits

by MiiWiin

Without a doubt AK and QQ are two of the best starting hands, but they can sometimes put you into very unpleasant spots.

Normally playing aggressively is not wrong but there are exceptions. Therefore, today you are supposed to evaluate a couple preflop decisions and have a second thought about them.

We will ignore the starting hands chart today, so the decisions here might differ from the play suggested by the chart.

Good luck!
