I dont believe so.Unless you hit a set your just as well off playing a small pair.Someone is usually going to have 2 overcards and catch a piece of the flop.

I dont think its good hand to go all in in the begining of tourney, why to risk all your chips with hand that can be beaten by avery Q, K, A.

If it's a freeroll I care anything about, it's definatly not an early all in hand.  Late in the tournament and short stacked it becomes a good all in hand. There is one situation were I'd call an all in early.  If you get one of those all ins with three or four others, I might call if I think the others all have high cards.  They have each others outs and it helps the JJ's along.

I just tried this tonight in a tourney because I was down to 360 in chips. I lost it all. I guess it all depends on what gut feeling you get.

As with many poker questions, the answer to this one is "it depends".  Most of the time and in most situations, it's not a good hand with which to risk all your chips early.  However, if you're calling someone who you know is likely to have pushed with something like Ax, or if you feel someone yet to act (preferably only one person) is likely to call with a significantly worse hand, then there are times when the odds are better than usual.  It's opponent-dependent though, so you want to have a read on how they play at that stage.

Many players will tell you this is one of the tougher hands to play. If not AA or KK any hand is dangerous to go all-in with. Early position i say no way all-in. Early in tourney i also say no way. If there are alot of callers you almost will assuredly be beat.

i'd say it depends on your position in the game. it is okay if you go all in with it preflop if you are shortstacked. but yeah, it's just the same as a small pair. if you don't hit and there are overcards don't be afraid to toss it.

I only go all in with any pair when I'm short stacked and the blinds are eating me up.

On another note, has anyone noticed that the pros are going all in more and more with medium pocket pairs.  I have even seen some of them do it when they are in the middle of the pack in chips.  Seems risky to me, even in position. :shock:  :?

JJ all in

Postby Andounized » Sat Mar 25, 2006 8:24 pm

not in a full table depends on position and chip stack but mostly on # of players in the pot

No, you should not go allin with JJ to start a freeroll unless it's one of those 10000 person freerolls or something where you're more than likely just wasting your time.  JJ is a just call and see the flop hand for me.  If you hit a set your in business if not your probably behind.
