I always love to play J 9.  It is something about the higher J and the 9 for the connection straight.  Suited is even better.  Solid Cards if you can call cheap.

Thats one my favorites!

One of my favorite hands too especially suited. Ive learned to play the suited and gapped connectors and Ive learned how to get away from them too. Idea is too see a cheap flop so you want to play them from late position preferably multi way with good pot odds. I have more success with them at a more passive table then one with a lot of raising. As always knowing your opponents helps too

I too love J9 suited or any suited connectors/one gappers 57+. I find them to be the most valuable after a lot of limpers when your in LP if you hit you could be getting paid off especially in low buy ins considering they shove it in with low pair or K high...

it all depends on how many ppl r at the table. if there is 5 or more i usally just fold low pair, less than 5 i'll raise.

we play limit at our local bar and then i'll fold any pocket pair under 9s, unless i have a gut feeling that i might hit one

I also agree that J 10 suited is a much better hand than J 9 suited.  Then again, you should go with your instincts and play any hand you feel successful with.  I agree that a hand like J 9 has big potential, and you can be paid off immensely if you connect with it.  However, with that potential also comes big risk.  Let's say a J hits on the flop.  How good would you feel with a 9 kicker?  Myself, I tend to stay away from hands like this unless I'm forced to play them.
