4 Times last night 1500 GTR. ACR. My JJ got beat on river. Took me from top 3/500 to bottom 10. Made it back and again. One more time. Last time didnít survive at about 50 th place.
What is frustrating is each time was a 1 or 2 outer. And never an over card.
You should put your hand here for us to analyze with you suddenly this is something wrong because JJ is a strong but dangerous hand as much as QQ take care. At the next opportunity post your history to see the opinion of others. Everyone is here to help.
Decide whether or not to play them aggressively. Just because you have JJ does not mean that you should automatically play that hand to win whatever happens. The average pairs going from 77 to the JJ are very difficult to play, and require a lot of judgment to be played at profit.
You can chain many winning moves, but lose everything on one mistake while you surely have the best preflop hand. Poker is a board game. Learn how to lay your hands, even if they seem to be the best preflop.
Yes, JJ are hard to play. I did however have the best one the other day. I limped with JJ, two other players. Last guy to act raised my stack was ok, so I called. Other guy also called. Here comes the flop.....JJK. Out of my mind..woohoo. By the river, me and the preflop raiser were all in. What a win. Wish JJ played like this every time.
