J10s in SB
Jack 10 suited in the small blind seems like a really awkward situation to me, and I commonly find myself struggling to pick the correct move to make.
It is a hand that really wants to see a flop, but doesn't want to be played OOP, which creates the awkward spot.
What do you guys do when you have J10s in the small blind and you have a few limpers behind you? I feel like it is not a strong enough hand to raise or try to iso with, even knowing that the other players are weak. The pot odds
are amazing to flat call, but if the flop comes and you have middle pair or even top pair medium kicker its a very tough spot to decide what to do.
What about dealing with an open from late position? Flatting just doesn't seem ideal. It will most likely result in check folding the flop from being OOP or create an uncomfortable spot if you hit what was described above. 3 betting seems like it could be really strong here, because you would have decent fold equity. The only problem with this is that you would have to insta-muck to a 4 bet and the only hands your opponents are continuing with seem to smash your range.
Conclusion? Seems like the best play is to just either see a cheap flop when limped into or fold to an open. Thoughts?
Very interesting spot I think, I would love to hear your opinions.
Also, take everything I say with a grain of salt, I'm fairly new to the forum and only have about 1 year of poker experience under my belt in general, thanks!
