Three JJ Failures

I was browsing my PokerTracker stats and found that this month I had some larger than normal losses on a certain type of table. I checked the 3 biggest losers and found that they were all with pocket Jacks.

These are all .05/.10 6-Max NLHE tables with me holding JJ. Do you see anything I did wrong here? Or are these "Just Poker"?

That's rough, I mean there were no overcards on the board in any of the three hands. You definitely had reason to believe you had the best hand in each case. I think you were mostly just unfortunate and experienced the evil that is pocket Jacks. If I never got dealt a JJ again, it would be too soon.

pot bet. lol.


You also might try playing JJ like a lower pocket pair, you seem like you might be overly aggressive with it.
