First off, is there a rolling list of famous and named poker hands? I bet we can design a preflop chart of hands and a little logo or pic beside it!

Anyway, what are your favorite poker hands and why?

I’ll always love being last to act with 7-2 limped to me. It feels like I always hit on the flop with the guys I play with. Haha!

55 - it's been a lucky hand - hit quads a few times with it

KT - hit a lot of nice draws with this hand

75s - has been lucky for me at Trihonda's game on a few occasions

5 7 suited. After getting beat like a wet dog on a weekend Vegas trip years ago, I stopped by Mirage early in the AM on my way to the airport for a short session. Hit a straight flush on the turn versus an ace high flush and a set of 6's -- turned my weekend around. Ever since, I've called it The Clean Up.

Also partial to the ladies.

Childish I know, but I love to play this hand when I'm defending my big blind against a standard preflop raise.

I have a soft spot for 22, I won my very first home tourney with it and bought my first set of chips with the winnings.

So weird you mention this one. I used to play with two goofball dudes. One guy liked Q2 and the other guy loved K4.

Me: Why do you like K4?

Goofball: Cuz when it hits, nobody sees it coming
Funny, in my neck of the woods we used to call Q with 2-7.."shemale"...a lady with a d.. k

Favourite hands are always a bad thing because they often make you act/play irrationally. Honestly I don’t have favourite hand.

Because in my early poker days, playing limit games in Canada, I was down to a short stack and ended up all in with K4hh. Flop came K44, turn K, river 4 lol. It's been my favorite hand ever since.
