This is a discussion on JJs losing to A5? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; How many people lost their top pocket hands to the most ridiculous offsuit lowest pair? How do you feel?;)
i feel fine. it's not a big deal in the long term.
Likewise, it doesn't bother me a ton because I know I got JJ in well. In the case of JJ vs A5o, the JJ should win about 70% of the time. This means that 30% of the time, or so, it will get cracked. 70% favorite is pretty good in poker, but it isn't a sure thing at 100%. I EXPECT JJ to lose sometimes
1st place finish at CardsChat 30 Day Course Freeroll (May 31, 2020). As my first ever CardsChat event, this one will always be special for me.
It can't be helped, losing is unpleasant with any hand, and even more so if you are ahead !!! Of course this is unpleasant, but when you sit down to play poker you must be mentally prepared for such a scenario !!!
The pair of jacks must be played carefully, it is a medium-high pair but it will not always win, if the opponent is in need of chips and has a hand like A5, he will surely go oll in and the pre-flop jacks may win but later they come. the streets and you have to see almost always flies a A greetings
In such cases, I feel fine. I do not see anything wrong with that. The main thing for me is to make the right decisions and not make mistakes. My results show that my bankroll is growing, so I have nothing to worry about.
I won AA vs 99 and KK vs Q6, there are players who enter with any type of cards looking to link and that situation is frustrating, it caused me a lot of annoyance.
I do not understand this type of player who enters with all with any card and despite that they win.
