Default Most profitable situations...

A friend of mine was complaining about how whenever he gets a monster hand, his opponents have nothing and he never wins big pots. Which got us talking about ideal situations that pay off the best. Assuming equal stacks of opponents and NL structure, what do you think are the most profitable situations? (read: you're going to get all their money)

I always think the full house vs. nut flush is a big one, but the flush has to see that paired board and at least think its a possibility.

Straight flush vs. nut flush might be the best.

Set vs. Over pair

Set vs. TPTK

Set vs. Top (or any) 2 pair

Lets hear some others.

Set over Set has got to be on that list

Quads over quads usually pays well.

Big card trips (ie, two bigs on board) against your small pocket pair that flops out a set. Big trips almost always hold up, and most bettors don't even consider a small boat lurking in the weeds. If the big cards are Aces or Kings, you're almost always looking at an all-in.

There have been alot of good hands posted.

But another thing that needs to be considered is position.

Sitiuation: board paired twice, three to a straight flush/royal flush: Qs Qh Js Jd TS

Full house (AQ) - all-in
Quads (JJ) - all-in
Small straight flush (9s 8s) - all-in
Royal flush (As Ks) - all-in.

If the full house is last, he might not call, figuring the best he might do is tie. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
