The Jimmy Rides Again

I play in a $.05/.10 NL home game on Friday nights and our favorite hand is the Jimmy 42o. We have some history with it as it cracks almost anything it faces.. The Jimmy is in fact the new AK… Anyways, this happened to me today.

Full Tilt Poker
Limit Hold’em: $.25/$.50

Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is CO with Jd Jh
4 folds, MP3 raises, Hero 3-bets, Button folds, SB calls, BB folds, MP3 calls.

Flop: 6c 2d Tc (9.6SB, 3 players)
SB checks, MP3 bets, Hero calls, SB folds.

Turn: 2s (5.7BB, 2 players)
MP3 bets, Hero raises, MP3 calls.

River: 3s (9.5BB, 2 players)
MP3 checks, Hero bets, MP3 calls.

Final pot: 11.4BB
MP3 showed 4s 2h
Hero showed Jd Jh

    I don’t understand why you failed to raise on the flop. Your turn action clearly tells us that you’re not worried about an overpair, and there were 2 flush cards on that flop.

    Though, he would have probably reraised you on the flop… as he had the jimmy and knew you had jacks… so um.. what can you do?

    My experience at these levels has been that if you raise the flop most hands will check/call on the turn and river. However if you smooth call on the flop and then raise the turn they check/call down. This nets you an extra half of a big bet. In addition, I can’t proect my hand on the flop so there is no reason to raise here.

    Also, I can’t put him on a 2 because once his hand comes in he shuts down. I’m pretty sure I lost the minimum here.
