Implied odds and set mining with other outs
If your holding 88 and raise 4x get 3 callers as you described and the flop comes 9-k-10 then you should fold however if it's qq-6 then set or boat mining for that one in 24 or so Chance is worth it to check and call assuming a qk-aq qj is probable. When you have jj and the boards comes a-7-k as it often does then getting value is very much impossible. If the turn comes a J the a q-10 has you crushed and with 3 other players in there the odds
of good cards like the ace or king paring are abysmal with only the 7 to help you which probably has been burned or mucked.. The only Value jj has on over card boards is something like aa-5 or 9-10-A because you might be good,or you can gamble it up to improve to a set which is good,or A solid Queen making you open ended even then your still gambling and that queen not might be good with qk, but at least you now you gambling for the nuts or a chop possibly but you have the jacks so it's less likely a queen will make Broadway to a kj.
