Statistically, 7-2 off-suit IS the worst starting hand in Texas Holdem. Even if your own personal experiences suggest otherwise, you can't deny the numbers. What I didn't know until I read this post was that it's not always the worst hand. I just gotta say that I didn't know 2/3 was worse when there are less players. Good find to whoever found that out.
Still though, both are always horrible hands no matter how many players there are. I'll be folding either one under normal circumstances (if i can check to get a free flop, naturally i'll take it :wink: ).
BTW, just because 2-3 is nicknamed Air Jordan (for obvious reasons), that doesn't make it a good hand. I for one think it sucks that MJ has to have his nickname and number soiled by this pathetic hand. :(

72 really sucks. :evil: cause you have no easy and fast chance of getting str8 only if you not tilting... but if you get really lucky you have more chances of getting quads.trips.FH.flush, any kind but i dont prefer playing with this hand :(

7-2 is the called "The Worst Hand In Poker" because in traditional 5 card drop, the worst possible hand to end up with is a 7 high card, and to have a 7 high card, the only other card you HAVE to possess, is a 2. (you must then have either, 345, or 456, or 356, or 346 or else it's a straight.)

Max explanation.

Sure, 7 and 2 off suit is a poor hand. But, it's hilarious when wins the showdown. So, for the sake of laughter, 7 2 off suit is a better hand then many.

2 7

It is the worst hand indeed; It is not a connector, so chances of hitting a straight is very narrow, but I really like to play it even in real poker mostly in home games because if u win a hand then afterwards show it , just look how your will friends react :P
