What do you call good hole cards.
If your whole cards are a pair of aces remember, eight other players all trying anything such as a 2-7 or a  3-9  unsuited. Wild players will stay in and you will be fighting against anybody trying to get a possible two pair or some players looking for a straight. Most of the time a pair as your whole cards will not mean you're going to win. By using the strategy that   you believe a small or mid pair or even a high pair are great cards and making a very large raise, you will be donating chips to the pot, over, over and over again. It is Better to look at the flop with the lowest cost possible to see where your hand is going. Yes a high pair is a good starting pair however remember how many times you have lost with a pair of aces or kings to two pair of low cards  so don't start a war just to see the flop.

Please always remember when you make a large raise what are you raising to gain. If you are only raising just to win the blinds you are not making a wise decision the more chips in the pot the bigger the win, let it build up if you think you have good cards after the flop. 

If you have enjoyed this strategy and found it useful please leave a note thank you.

I totally agree with you!

 I never understood the players who immediately put a very weighty amount before the flop, and then when they understand that flop did not improve the situation, but on the contrary only aggravated everything, they continue to raise with huge bets, forcing you to fold ...
