Yeah if you play against someone for a lot of time and the other person has not change his game by much or you get solid reads on him you can make some money by folding at the right place and time and you can be said to do a hero fold when your instinct are right on! Remember how you can spot if somebody has a three of a kind on the flop, it is easy to spot, when you bet they will re raise all in or when you check they will push all in all the same going for the max value hoping you would call lol.

It+s a tricky pair for me position is the key you don´t want to play this hand with lots of other players so you must push hard of the first best and wait to see what the field do the flop will tell what to do if the set comes great if not read the table and go for it sometimes you win sometimes you loose Like everything there are no easy ways and a sure thing

The novice players generally lose all their chips with this pair.
Today I learned enough to try this hand. Thank you all for your comments. I will keep uploading videos to clarify the issue more.
I also believe that without any decision statistics is hard to take. Even knowing our rivals is hard to play JJ
------------ I found this information on how to play JJ's obligation to share it.
We all know that Doyle Brunson is an aggressive player, but still he considers this pair as a small pair.
In his book, called any pair QQ below par as a boy. However distinguishes JJ, 10-10 and 9-9 playing these hands more aggressively.
"With a pair of Jacks, Ten, Nine or ... if someone made a raise from early position, probably only pay.
But if one comes up middle or late position ... would make a re-raise if you see who goes is a weak opponent. "
Brunson explained using hands like JJ to play more slowly and show a player who respects him. For example, if JJ Brunson has against an opponent who is playing very aggressive and the flop comes Q-4.2, the check would make a rival to show the respect and achieve lower your image of hyper-aggressive.
As you can see, even a hyper aggressive player as recommended caution Brunson playing pocket jacks before the flop.
