Texas Holdem – How to Play QJ


Queen Jack(QJ) is fondly nicknamed Quack and is a decent hand to start playing with. This poker hand boasts of two royals but the problem is none of them is high enough. There is a 32% chance that you will surely see an over card on the flop which is never a good thing. So what poker strategy works best for you when you play these cards in the game of poker?

Play your position

Quack is all about position play and knowing when to fold. If you stay within your realms and do not over estimate your cards, you are safe. The best poker tip for QJ would be to play it comfortably from late position. They can be played from early and mid position only if the royals are suited. But if you see a raise come up then you shouldn’t think twice. Just lay it down because chances are that there are over cards or even a royals pair with someone. So rule of the thumb here should be to just call the blinds and never raise or call a raise.

When Played at Adda52

Player ashuashen played this poker hand a little differently than normal poker strategies would advise. He raised to 40 on the texas hold’em table with blinds at 4/8 and was called by abhi144 with As Jc. The flop turned out to Qc 4d 5c and ashuashen had got his top pair. But the battle was not won so he checked and saw the turn as 4s. Now he held two pairs and the way the game had preceded it seemed little chance that his heads up opponent had pocket pairs. Thus he felt comfortable with his top pair and raised to 40 again getting abhi144 all in. the river was 4h and thus Full boat for ashuashen. Here, abhi144 had the edge in starting hands but he didn’t have position to back him. The aggressive playing style of ashuashen won him the game.

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.
