Today’s poker strategy is a primer on playing suited connectors in low stakes cash games. All links mentioned in the show are at the bottom of this ⬇️

Introduction
* What are suited connectors?
Two cards in sequential order of the same suit. 7❤️6❤️ etc
* Why are suited connectors so important?
They add deception to our preflop raising range, they have playability across multiple streets, they are easy to get away from when they miss, and they can stack opponents with great implied odds.
* What are the different ways to play suited connectors?
Primarily you should be aggressive with suited connectors from late positions. Avoid them from early position. You can also play them passively in certain situations preflop , mainly from the button.


Playing suited connectors preflop
* When should you play suited connectors preflop?
You want to mainly play suited connectors from late position and for a raise. You can do this over one or two limpers and use your position to win postflop a lot when called.

You can also use them to 3b later position pfr when they have a wider range. This allows you take it down preflop, flop big hands postflop , or use your position to win a portion of the time.
* How should you play suited connectors against different types of opponents?
Let’s assume you are on the button with 7❤️6❤️.
Vs a raise by a nit you should just call if stacks are deep enough to reward you when you hit against their very condensed range of hands. Raising them preflop would be bad because they open so tight they are never folding and will likely be coming over the top.

Vs a standard thinking player who has a more standard opening range you can 3b this spot when they are opening from layer positions at the table like LJ, HJ, CO etc

Vs a LAG you can mix calls or 3b. Preferably 3b when stacks are deep and you can punish their wide range on many flops even when you miss.

* What are some common mistakes to avoid when playing suited connectors preflop?
Always calling and going super multi-way. You open yourself to reverse implied odds against better straights.

Not 3b when the circumstances are right.

Not raising with them preflop.

Trying to play them too much from EP like utg and utg1 etc

Playing suited connectors postflop
* How should you play suited connectors after the flop?
You should be aggressive with big draws especially when the board doesn’t favor your opponent. Many times you can just win when they cbet on bad boards for their range and take it down. On boards like this hands as weak as gutshots and top pair with back doors etc are good.

In boards where your opponent has a nutted range it doesn’t make much sense to raise as you never win with a fold.

Raise and playyour best draws very aggressively. Pairs and flush draws. Straight and flush draws. Etc.

* What are some common mistakes to avoid when playing suited connectors postflop?
Always calling with draws. Especially when multi-way. This allows better draws to come along too.

Conclusion
* Tips for improving your suited connector play
Raise and 3b more preflop
Be more aggressive postflop
Be aggressive with strong draws
Be aggressive on boards bad for Villian
