    I personally hate fishhooks - they're either big winners or big losers. Either way they're scary. I've won and lost with JJ - I find it hard to be impartial.

    Good luck!!

      I play JJ like any low pocket, like 55 or 88. I raise but try to never go all in in the pre-flop because Q-K and Aces can be dangerous. Try to see the flop without pushing all your chips away, it saved me a lot of tournament!
