Jack Jersey Ill Hold Your Hand



The leaves have yet to turn near the Nebraska sandhills, and Andy and Brianna Hoffman settle into rocking chairs on a white wraparound porch. "Can I hold your hand?" Andy asks Bri, and they clasp fingers. They're waiting for their son to come home.




Jack Jersey Ill hold your hand



Bulls become defensive when a cow is in heat and needs to be removed from "his" group or moved with the group to the holding pen for milking. Never handle the bull alone, and never turn your back on a bull. To move cattle or to appear larger and to protect oneself, carry a cane, stick, handle, plastic pole with flap, or a baseball bat. For further information about bull behavior and handler safety, refer the book by to Albright and Arave, "The Behavior of Cattle," CAB International, 1997, or many of the older dairy textbooks.


But trust us, this is the best way to improve circulation in both your hands and your fingers. The more you work out your hands and fingers, the more your blood vessels in that area will dilate in order to allow the oxygenated blood to get through.


The decision you make all comes down to knowing the value of each card in your hand and understanding general blackjack rules. Cards with numbers on them provide that specific number value, but face cards (jack, queen and king) are, like 10s, worth 10 points. An ace can be worth 1 or 10 points depending on which is better for your hand (i.e. which number can help you get closer to 21.)


No matter what variation you choose to play, just like online slots, there is a strong element of chance to blackjack. However, knowing when to hit or stay can improve your odds of a win.


Dammit! Justkill me already! He clapped his hands against his thighs and then beat hischest. He reached into his shirt pocket for what I was sure would be a buckknife and produced an ever-so-lethal book of matches. "Guess we'll have touse these." Another stay of execution. "I got the jack near..."


"As I wassayin'" he began, jarring me back to the business at hand "I got thejack near the bumper. Now, I'll light the match and hold it there while you putit in the right place. I was torn between correcting him for not clearlydefining the antecedent of 'it', and telling him the jack should be nearthe wheel under the frame. Instead, I said nothing. So, we got down on ourhands and knees, supplicating ourselves to the god of tire-changing. He lit amatch, but before he could get it near the jack an eighteen wheeler shot by andblew it out. We had offended the god of tire-changing, perhaps a pilgrimage toAkron (unfeasible as it was) would appease him. Oscar simply lit another match,ignoring the god's anger. He brought it near the jack and I moved it until itlooked like it was under something solid. "Okay, it's good." He saidas he began to turn the lugwrench (it was a screw kind, not a pump kind). Eventually, it reached the contact point.


I grunted inaffirmation and began to wonder about the kind of place I live. Has it reachedthe point where a simple act of helpfulness calls a man's sanity into question? I suppose so, else Oscar wouldn't have been worried. While I stood therewondering Oscar had begun to place the jack in the right general area. We beganthe match lighting process again, but it didn't work. Every time, either abreeze would blow, or a truck or car would speed past and put the matches out. Oscar ran out of matches and we both sat there, beaten by the tire-changing god. Then it came to me: "Maybe I should move my car behind yours, then we canuse my headlights."


Imagine you are in a relay race, you get handed the baton by your team mate who is in the lead as was the team mate who handed him the baton, you take the batton, guess what, you are in the lead already and if you dont fuck it up you will finish in the lead.


The one hand that gives beginners more trouble than ace-king or even ace-queen has to be pocket jacks. JJ is such a trouble hand that most beginners actually even hate having it dealt to them. Still, most players get a twinge of excitement when they see a pair of pocket jacks knowing they're holding a top 5 hand. The euphoria is typically short-lived, though, once they remember their less-than-stellar track record with it.


Extreme players will change how you play your hand. If you have a player moving all-in blind almost every hand, how you play your hand will change depending on if that player acts before or after you in that hand - regardless of your true position on the table.


If one of the other hands dealt is AK, how you play your jacks will change dramatically depending on whether AK plays before or after you. If it's before, they'll most likely take the lead; if they play after you, they'll most likely follow you.


The idea with jacks pre-flop is to gain information on the other hands. If no one has a higher pair, you have the most equity; thus if you open-raise, your raise is a value raise. If there are players with a higher pair, your raise serves as an information raise.


If there is a raise ahead of you, you have two choices. Call and make your decisions post-flop without any (or much more) information, or make a three-bet pre-flop. If you get moved in on it's an easy fold, but if you get called you're now playing a very large pot, most likely with a dominated hand.


Moving all-in against a raise pre-flop is similar to the early example of moving all-in with jacks. In this scenario you're more often dominated (since the raise typically means the other player has a good hand), so moving in here is a very -EV play. More often than not, you want to be raising this hand pre-flop: you want to take control of the pot, but at the same time you want to keep the pot small.


Your goal with jacks, in a full-ring cash game, should never be to get it all-in unimproved. To keep the pots small you want to check and call at certain points during the hand rather than bet and raise at every opportunity. Unfortunately it's not always apparent whether you have the best hand or not going to the flop. Remember:


It's the middle hands that get you into situations worthy of thought. JJ is arguably the strongest hand in this category. Just under a quarter of the remaining cards in the deck have a rank higher than your pair. If a player is dealt one overcard to your jacks, the odds of him pairing that card is around 16%.


If he has two overcards to your hand the odds of him pairing one of them on the flop double to around 32%. As we learned above the chances of another player having been dealt a pocket pair higher than yours are almost exactly 1-8, or 12%. So there's a 12% chance you're beat pre-flop, and if all players dealt a card higher than a jack see the flop you're beat 32% of the time on top.


So right now these numbers are not so hot with you losing 44% of the pots right off the bat. Before you start wondering how it's possible for JJ to be a top 5 hand with numbers such as this, remember that statistics of this sort don't take into account playing styles and human mentalities. Every player dealt a card higher than a jack is not going to see every flop. These numbers serve as a guideline to give you an idea of where jacks stand before the human element comes into play.


More often than not, raising with your jacks will put you heads-up to the flop. The following chart details the most common types of hands to see a flop with you, and the equity of jacks being ahead by the river.


When your raise doesn't get you heads-up or you choose not to raise pre-flop with JJ, you'll need a solid understanding of where the hand stands up against a variety of fields. The following three charts are examples of playing the hand five-handed against a field "good" for your hand, "bad" for your hand or a "mixed" field.


Although you'll find yourself in both good and bad fields most often you'll be up against a mixed field. As you can see throughout the charts, your equity will change dramatically depending on how many players are in the pot and the types of hands you're up against.


In a field like the one in the chart above you have 37% equity (a 2-1 dog) while getting 4-1 on your money. Although jacks are a top 5 hand, and do hold a very large amount of equity, the mistake many beginners make is to view all big pairs as "one type of hand."


Now that you've read up on the odds and know some of pocket jacks' strengths and weaknesses, you're poised to make informed decisions on how to play the hand post-flop. One of the fundamental concepts in poker is to never bet the middle hand. In short, if you bet a middle hand you will never get called by a worse hand and you'll always get called by a better hand. Therefore - don't do it. This is a concept - a poker theory. Its purpose is to allow you to grasp the "far ahead/far behind" philosophy of poker.


JJ is a perfect example of a middle hand pre-flop. Unless it improves on the flop it will remain a middle hand. If your opponents hit the flop, your middle hand will become a bottom hand, turning JJ into nothing more than a bluff.


At that point it doesn't matter what you hold; JJ has no more value than 2-3. Luckily for you, JJ is on the higher end of the middle category - it ranks ahead of all other middle hands and bottom hands.


Every time you make a large bet and get a call the size of the pot grows exponentially. Each subsequent bet must be larger, forcing players into pot-committed situations. By betting pot on all streets, you're forcing yourself to play a very large pot with a small hand. It's better to win small pots and fold to players giving signs of holding a big hand rather than win and lose big pots all the time.


Of course, as with anything in poker, this is situational. If you're up against a player willing to put his stack on the line with top pair or less, your JJ overpair becomes a big hand. In a standard scenario, though, JJ is a small hand and should be played as such.


As you can see, even though another player has aces and a third player holds a gutshot straight draw, you're still 73% to win this pot. At this point you now have a top hand. This is where you want to change your strategy to play a large pot. You want to get as much money into this pot as you can. If you only flop an overpair against other small hands that hit, your odds will change greatly. 041b061a72
