Texas Holdem – How to Play J10

Popularly called Justin Timberlake or John Terry for the initials, JT, this poker hand is surprisingly considered a strong starting combination in Texas Holdem. This hand isn’t capable of making top pair but is credited with having the potential to strike the top straight in the game of poker. Jack Ten suited is an even better thing to see and makes decision making fairly simple.

Late position is the best

Position is very important while playing most poker hands but JT defies the rules of poker and makes game play very simple. Whichever way you play pre-flop, it is very easy to make choices with JT post flop. If raising in late position, you either hit your monster straight on the flop or you don’t. Now it is easy to decide, if you flopped your straight then the game takes off for you and if you don’t then it is time to muck. JT is straight forward, either you hit the nuts or you don’t hit anything thus eliminating possibilities of getting stuck in a worthless pot. So play JT with confidence from all positions and simply muck if you don’t hit the straight or get a straight draw after the flop is the best poker tip.

When Played at Adda52

In the online poker iPhone finals on 29th April 2012 at Adda52, Player playtowin won a big pot thanks to his poker hand of JT. With 3 players left in the end stages of the poker tournament, playtowin was small blind and saw Jc 10s. Player mpad was big blind and had 6h Js. Both players hit top pair with the flop Jd 4s 9s but playtowin had a better kicker. Seeing no over cards he raised 400 and a confident mpad re-raised to 800 which was called by playtowin. The turn was 3 h and both checked to see the river 7c which got playtowin the winning hand. His value bet of 400 got him the call from mpad and thus a very good pot was won by marginal hands of JT.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
