limp preflop is awful, postflop is fine although I would rather you shove the turn than call a shove.

xCashin-inx,

start tossing away the worst 90% of your hands preflop. Seriously. Once you've plugged that huge gaping leak in your game, you can start to focus on postflop nuances.

If you want a rough estimate on what constitutes 10% of your hands:

77+,A9s+,KTs+,QTs+,AJo+,KQo.

J5s is somewhere in the vicinity of the 50:th percentile. And you play it under the gun.

Seriously, stop that.

Altough I am new here, and don't have much say. I agree with above poster like 100%, very terrible IMO pre-flop.

I see what your saying, I really do and normally I wouldnt play J5, but I do like to play hands like 10-9, 9-8, 6-5 just because the raisers wont have those hands so when a flop comes 5-4-3 and im sitting with 6-5 unless they have a big pp im looking very good. J5 is usually not a playable hand for me but playing 6max if I throw away 90% of my hands I will be considered a nit and get no action. Full ring game I will be much much more conservative but thats what I love about the 6 max tables.

Maybe its just me but id be more inclinde to call a raise with 10-9 than I would with A-10.

Yes, fold preflop, shove flop, fold turn. Pretty much misplayed on every street (besides the river, where you couldn't do anything lol).

I know it's harsh, but I'm trying to be helpful. No matter who you are, playing J5 (yes even sooted) not even 100 BB's deep will not be profitable, you're way behind on this turn, and we shove the flop while we have good equity and so as not to be in this position on the turn and not lose value when we hit.

This is the scenario you'll see most often playing the way you choose to.
