Default Re: starting hands only with + ev

If you are just starting, you should use some guidelines that you stick to with regard to which cards to play from which position, but don't be fooled into believing that there is anything like a definiative list of +EV starting cards. Everytime someone talks about PI, I go on tilt.

Keep in mind, standardish starting card requirements are completely different for limit and NL. Sklansky groups are for limit. I assume PI's EV is based on limit, since there are so many more factors you need to take into consideration when deciding what cards to play in NL than in limit.

If you ahve a starting hand chart, it is doing the same thing as PI's EV thing. But if you are playing NL, make sure you are using starting card guidelines for NL and not for limit.
