As any other PP, it is really just ONE PAIR, and should be played accordingly. Preflop with JJ I play according to position only. A bit deifferent though depending on the game being Cash or MTT.

What do you guys think?


Hands like KJ and QJ are very tough to play.  I usually only play them from late position and I like to be aggressive.  This might sound odd, but I try to avoid becoming a calling station with these hands....and that's what usually happens.  

For example:  You play QJ and the flop comes 7Q4.  A guy before you bets.  I will raise here in most situations.  The tendency is to call, because you have no idea what you are up against but can't release top pair just yet.  Unfortunately, calling is a wasted bet.  Unless a J comes on the turn, you are still in the same predicament.  You need to gain information or you need to release it.  The only way to gain the info is by raising his bet.

I treat JJ like any other low pocket from most positions on the table except from late spot if only one or two are already in i might throw in a standard raise.Otherwise i just try to limp in cheap most times and try and flop a set.With a lot of people entering pots with any two high cards in freerolls JJ is thrash if Q-K-A shows on the flop.With more experienced players at the table you can be a little more creative with JJ because people have the ability to lay down a hand but not in most freerolls.

in the other case i make a big raise in order to not see the flop

Its the hir or run situation, when its a hit, its usually big win, but when I dont hit it, I fold it like a little baby!

I think all pocket pairs are over rated.  I usually dont even play pocket twos.  You have to flop a set to win most of the time, so why risk it.  If the blinds are small, then maybe.

Lately i have seen Jacks getting burned so often. It,s just the luck of the timing it seems. Sometimes no-one has anything to make a call with and other times you get 3 callers and your likely going to get beaten. A small raise to get out the garbage hands will help your chances.

I feel that J's and 10's are the hardest pocket pairs to play.  If you're low-stacked in a tournament, you're really left no choice but to go all-in with them.

If on the other hand, you have right around the average, you should probably play them just like you would any other middle pocket pair.  Myself, I usually raise with them pre-flop instead of just limping, but will just call with them if facing a raise pre-flop.  That way I can get away from either hand if an over card hits on the flop.
