How lớn Play Jack-Ten Suited Preflop

Before jumping into postflop scenartiện ích ios, we are going to lớn take a look at how khổng lồ play Jack-Ten suited in a variety of comtháng preflop situations.

Unopened Pots

This hand is strong enough khổng lồ be open-raised from any position. Limping this h& would only lead to smaller pots being won on average over the long-run.

Against a Raise

Your play when facing a raise should depend on your position và the position of the raiser. Let’s split this section inkhổng lồ three groups:

1. When you’re in Middle Position through Button

There are two schools of thought, both of which can be good:

1.Playing a 3-bet only strategy.2.Play a mixed strategy that has both 3-bets & cold-calls.

Both strategies have extremely similar expected value (EV) as long as you apply the appropriate postflop strategy.

If you want to lớn choose a 3-bet or fold strategy, you will want lớn 3-bet with this h&. If you’re using a mixed strategy, then you will want to Gọi with this hand as it’s not svào enough to 3-bet for value, nor is it weak enough lớn 3-bet as a semi-bluff.

2. From the Small Blind

If you play this hvà from the Small Blind when facing a raise, you should always 3-bet. And you should bởi vì so almost every time. The exception is when you are against a very tight opening range in a 9-handed game.

3. From the Big Blind

When you’re in the Big Blind facing a raise, you should vary your play based on the position of the raiser.

If it was the Small Blind, Cutoff or Button who raised, you can either 3-bet or Hotline (using a mixed frequency strategy is best according to lớn preflop solver outputs). Against all other positions, just Điện thoại tư vấn and take a flop.

Against a 3-Bet

In highly raked games, which is most poker games, preflop solvers show that Jack-Ten suited should sometimes be called & sometimes be 4-bet when out of position against the 3-bettor.

There is a huge penalty for calling a 3-bet và seeing a flop when most games have a “No flop, no drop” rule in place. This is why such a powerful hvà should still hit the muchồng against a 3-bet some of the time.

When you’re facing a 3-bet & have the advantage of position, you should almost always gọi with Jack-Ten suited. The exception here is when you raised from early or middle position and the player who 3-bet is a good player (with a well-built 3-betting range).

Against a 4-Bet

Not all 4-bet situations are the same, so let’s break this section down inlớn two scenargame ios.

1. You 3-bet from Middle Position through Button and face a 4-bet from the open-raiser.

You should usually fold in this spot. The exception is if you are on the button facing a 4-bet from the cutoff, in which case you can Hotline.

2. You 3-bet from Small Blind or Big Blind.

You should only gọi in this scenario when it is the player on the Button 4-betting. Otherwise, make the fold.

Keep in mind that it is important khổng lồ consider your opponent’s 4-betting tendencies. Against a tight 4-bettor, for example, you can usually comfortably fold Jack-Ten suited lớn their 4-bet, regardless of your/their position.

3 Tips for Playing When You Miss the Flop (As the Preflop Raiser)

Tip #1 – Always bet when you flop any real draw

Jack-Ten doesn’t have sầu any showdown value, which makes it an ikhuyễn mãi giảm giá semi-bluffing hand when you have sầu outs khổng lồ improve sầu to lớn a straight or flush. That includes gutshot straight draws.

Tip #2 – Always bet when you have sầu a backdoor flush draw

When you have sầu some type of backdoor equity lượt thích a backdoor straight draw or backdoor flush draw, then it’s best to lớn bet. This is because it will enable you to lớn continue (semi-)bluffing when the turn gives you a real draw.

Tip #3 – Cheông xã on super connected boards when you don’t have sầu a real draw

I’m talking about boards such as


On boards like these, Jack-Ten does have a backdoor straight draw. But because the board is so connected và better for the caller’s range, your overall strategy should be very passive in these situations.

3 Tips for Playing When You Hit the Flop

Tip #1 – When you flop top pair in a single-raised pot, lean towards betting on the flop and checking on the turn

On most boards, the top pair that you’ll hit will not be not svào enough lớn value bet for three streets.

Jack-Ten’s top pairs are usually worth betting two streets for value, và it’s usually better extract this value by betting flop-checking turn-betting river (rather than bet-bet-checking). This way you can pick off some bluffs from your opponent or find yourself in a clear value-bet spot on the river after the opponent checks again.

Tip #2 – Never slow-play your super-svào made hands

This tip really applies lớn every h&.

When you have sầu a svào hvà in poker, you should almost always lean towards building the pot ASAP.. When you flop two pair, trips, a straight or a flush, you should basically always fast-play your h&.

Tip #3 – If you have top pair plus a flush draw, double barrel more often on the turn.

As previously mentioned, normally the top pairs you hit with Jack-Ten will not be not svào enough khổng lồ value bet with for three streets, so you should often check the turn.

But when you have a flush draw to lớn go with your top pair, this pushes the value of the hand just above sầu the threshold that makes it worth betting. This happens because the hvà has incentive to keep building the pot in case it hits a flush on the river.
