This is a recuring thread, and it isn't even informative anymore. It's turned into a circlejerk of people complaining that JJ is impossible to play. It really isn't, you just need to progress with it like any other hand, and think it through.

You've seen a player limp everything except AA? Don't play back at them with JJ.

You've seen another player in every pot, regardless of their starting hand? JJ plays extremely well.

Be warned of the OVP double barrel, that usually won't end well for JJ.

You don't lose 80% of the time with JJ, it just looks that way because you always remember playing your big pairs. You keep finding yourself in tricky spots with these hands because you're probably playing them wrong.

I was just playing the 500 Dollar Starburst on 888 Poker. I was in the top ten with only 1.000 players left and I found a pair of jacks in early position. I just calle and got an all in from a small stack folled by an all in from a big stack. I called and of course I lost against QQ from the big stack.

To be honest, I really don't like any pocket pair excluding QQ, KK and AA.
I would be much happier or get excited when I get KQs, JTs, 76, 52, or something like those depending on the position/stack size, etc., except it is fu*kin involuntarily forced shove/fold situation.

I really hate it! I have just finished playing the german high roller final. I played pretty tight this time and when only 160 players were left and the blind very high I pushed all in with A10. And as always I get called from K8 offsuit and loose it.

You stacked off with JJ with a T10 stack against a player with a larger stack? That's a bad move dude. That's not JJ being hard to play, that's a pretty bad call.

I just played pocket Jacks in a game I am playing at the moment. I flopped a J and on the table was an A and a 3. Due to position in the game and stack size, I went all in.......some small stack called me and rivered a straight against my trips....oops! Didn't lose much and have shot back past where I was since! Not the best example....but that's how it crumbles cookie wise.

Pocket Jacks saved my ass today a couple times, once on a FH and another on a river card which completed a straight against 2 pairs.

I admit the 2nd one I was lucky but I like playing them, I seem to lose more with KK than I do with JJ

just saying

I have just had anoter pocket jacks in the 500 Dollar starburst on 88. It was one hand before the bubble and because I did not have too many chips left I pushed all in. And as always I loose to such a lucky dude, this time with 65 making a straight on the river.
