Pocket Jacks are like any other Pocket pair, Fine if they hit the flop but difficult to sell if you miss. In a live tourney I got dealt JJ on the BB and was raised 3X by the button, I was a little concerned as we were on the Final table, and was not ready to go home quite yet.
The flop came 8,9,10 rainbow and being first to act I checked to the aggressor. He pushed all in and I had already worked out I had ten outs any 7, any Queen and of course a Jack would give me trips,
My opponent could have had any combination of 6/7 or J/Q or any pocket pair, 88 and above. I decided I had too much invested in the pot and called I turned over my Jacks and his face sank as he saw them and turned over Ace/Ten he had top pair with top kicker but he had to hit again to beat me. He Didn't and we shook hands as he walked away. I finished 2nd on that day.
When the fun Stops, STOP!
