Ok so really appreciating any advice i receive on this one. JJ is it really even a hand worth playing? i mean truth be told it is the 4 -5 best hand in poker but still, they just never ever ever ever seem to fly through for me.
I was really wondering if anybody else came across this problem while they play poker. I mean when i get dealt JJ i usually raise about 3 - 4 BB so as to only get a caller or two, and every every every single flop contains an Q K or A in it!!. im not kidding when i say every time. at the short run maybe you was unlucky to get flops with Q, K or A, but at the long run JJ is worthy hand and you will be many times ahead. like you was at the example below.
Yesterday i was in a tourney with JJ, flop came out to be 2 8 10..i pushed all in ( i had average stack) the other guy calls, shows his AK and catches both an A and K on the turn and river. so tell me, is it really even worth the bother of playing JJ? yes it worth playing it, and you made the right move after the flop, you just got unlucky but most of the time in this situation you will win, the precentage at the situation you described are 75% you win and only 25% to the AK, so he was just lucky and get into the 25% and caught K/A. good luck next time
