Hi im pretty new to online Poker. But i played with a few friends privatly. Now in a small group playing Jacks is something i could do all the time. But since i played online im starting to overestimate Jacks. I know that hands are very dependable on the position you are in. So going through the Positions when do i fold, call, or raise(go all in)?
Open shove or call all-in with jacks when you're short-stacked..
Most of the rest of the time it's prudent to play them cautiously and to flat-call raises pre and reassess based on flop texture/action..
It's very easy and dangerous to over value jacks and jamming over raises pre will likely lose more chips than it will win in the long run.
In MTT's it's super important to gain as much information (i.e. seeing the flop before committing your entire stack) as possible because even AA can turn into near enough trash with a very unfavourable flop..
~EDiT:- This is MTT advice, cash games & smaller SNG's you should perhaps play JJ more aggressively..
