Premium Hands like AA might not necessarily be profitable for some players. It`s a big claim to make, but bear with me
Why?

Well, many otherwise fine players have John Smith Syndrome. It is a plague upon their bankrolls, and also renders them social outcasts. Pretty bad, huh?

Perhaps things will be clearer when I reveal that the John Smith that I named this syndrome after was the captain of the Titanic. As everyone knows, the Titanic was unsinkable. JSS sufferers believe that AA, KK, AK, and sometimes QQ or even JJ are unsinkable. They persist in this belief, even after they've hit the iceberg. This costs them money (by chasing a losing hand) and also makes them assholes (not to put too fine a point on it). JSS players tend to complain bitterly about getting their aces cracked, and often lose equity in a game not by tilting, but simply by driving away the fish.
