  • Playing Jacks

    I'm playing The Big $2.20 and I've reached the money. UTG limps in so I figure he's pretty weak, and Liiano shoves with 10bb. He's pretty loose and I figured that my Jacks are a favorite here so I shoved with the incentive of UTG folding. I lucked out, but would you have played this hand differently considering this situation?

      Reads will mean a ton here. If he's shoving light, then I like the push, because it can scare off UTG and isolate the weaker opponent. You were a 2-1 favorite to win the hand and still have chips to play with, so like your play. Yes, you got unlucky, but I like the way you played it. If the opp was playing tighter, then I'd probably fold the JJ and try to find a better situation.
