Poker Training - Hold'em Hands


A Mnemonic is a trick to help you remember something easily. Randomly pick two cards from a deck of 52 cards, there are 1,326 possible 2-card hands that can be created.

Too much to remember? Yeah, for most of us. Let's make it easier. Let's disregard suits. (For ex.-A poker terms, glossary 9 poker training = A shorthand limit poker 9 poker hand rules or same value). Now you have just 169 possible hands. Much easier now because you also have nicknames for most of these hands, aka the Mnemonics of Poker.

The idea here is simplifying the game so that you can concentrate on other factors like tells and how other players are playing there hands.
Refer to the "hold'em hand nicknames chart" for jogging your brain and the "poker lingo quiz" material if you are new to the game.
