I would say that pocket 10s have are worth more than pocket Jacks because you need a 10 or a 5 to make a straight. Therefore I would rather take the help from the 10s in making the straight as you have almost the same chances as with Jacks, as Queens, Kings, and Aces can beat them bothxdmanx007 said:Take your pick 8,9,or 10's. Jacks are still a power hand and should be played as such. The problem is most low stakes players outright refuse to throw away an ace regardless of your raise, that is why they seem to get cut often. Yes you absolutely need to consider dumping your hand if overcards come out especially an ace. I will usually represent I have aces after the flop with my bets if I have K,Q, or J's. But if you get called or fired back at cut your losses and fold.
