Js or 10s

Postby Wiffew » Sat Oct 29, 2005 4:19 pm

Having problems playing pocket Js and 10s.  If the preflop bet is too high I just fold sometimes.  If it's affordable I usually only call and play it out because rasing or all-ins only seem to work maybe 5% of the time so I'd rather fold or just call the flop.

HOWEVER, this is only if the table is full.  If it's 1-1 or only a few people on the table I'll raise it up. I'M NOT THAT STUPID!   lol

If you are only against one opponent you can make a big bet cause you have the best chance to win the hand !

For some strange reason, I like pocket 10's more than J's. J's have been nothing but trouble for me, but 10's have proven to be quite effective in holding up and winning big pots.

both 10,10 and j,j can have you up against higher pairs but playing the table situations of position will help. If folded to you in mid to late you can put in a limiting raise to get heads up and then play the flop accordingly. Given that there are many A,x players you want to get them to fold preflop and avoid the beats.

With a full table, JJ will be a losing hand most of the time if all the players see the flop. Raise or re-raise on the preflop will increase your chance to win.
