One very common mistake that the beginner/intermediate players is to play any two big cards or any ace card from an early position and call raises with the same type of hand based without looking at the big picture.

This is one of the biggest mistakes a player can make as these hands can very easily become trap hands. A trap hand is any hand that has a high probability of becoming the second-best hand, costing you a lot of money if you happen flop into it.

Some of the most common trap hands are AT, AJ, KQ, KJ, KT, QJ and QT. Many players limp in from early position and call raises in middle/late position with this type of hand. Therefore, if you limp with KJ from an early position and someone in late position raises you, you could easily find yourself trapped against common raising hands such as KQ, AK, AJ, AA, KK and QQ.

This of course also applies when you call raises with this kind of hand and that can be a mistake. Some of the most common raising hands from an early position include AA, KK, QQ, JJ, AQ and AK. Why would you want to call a raise with a trap hand when the other raiser is most likely to hold one of the above hands?
