Do you play these hands on a regular basis? Evn suited you can run into trouble with higher flushes

I used to, but have found a lot of the time the straight draw isn't on, u flop top card but with weaker kicker, goodbye chips

I remember watching some programme saying j10 is one of fav starting hands for a lot of pros, bemused

J10 is very good hand for me. Better than AK Smile
But on one condition: If you play J10, aim to straight (not pair or something else)

J9 and J10 are both poor hands, and you should very rarely play them...

The reason J10 is a fave of the pros, is that it is a "nut chasing hand". If you have a straight with J10, it will be the nuts (on a non-paired/3 flushing board)... and if you flop a straight draw, it will be the nut straight draw... and pros are good enough to not get attached to top pair, weak kicker - so it can be a very profitable hand, and is unlikely to lose a lot, as they won't chase with poor odds.

I personally only play JT suited and i do not try to chase an impossible hand, i mean if you get a straight draw on the flop or two pairs is good, if not i tend to fold the hand.

J9 i usually do not play since you aim for a king high str8 other usually get the ace high str8...

it depends on many factors: is it cash game, sng, mtt; what stage of sng/mtt - early , middle, bubble...what kind of opposition you're against- say your table is full of "all-in" morons, then j9/j10 is not the best hand to play...u know yourself that u can with with any hand, so just move all in and pray

Rarely play j9 suited or not and J10 more likely, but only when I feel it if you know what I mean. Just seems to bite ya to often if you play these hands on any type of a regular basis. I also don't care for a K,9.
