Since many people will be playing premium hands, it is good to know how QQ will fare against other premium hands. Intuitively, we may think that premium hands should all be very good and that one premium hand should only be slightly better than a less premium hand. You may think "Isn't KK just one rank higher than QQ?" but you will be surprised by the extend in which one premium hand can dominate another premium hand, even though there are 5 more cards that can change the outcome.
