      This time i hit with my 8 and then i cant really stand against any agression, i dont think i could have taken to much heat if i hit the A either. So i am quite curious what to do in these spots :f_confused:

      Hello Musematte,

      No, it's not really okay to Call with J4o. :P You can't even hit much with the hand and more often putting yourself into trouble, even with 2pairs you wont really know where you stand nor even with trips.

      Rather start completing hands as SCs first then those very crappy hands which can't even hit much, they are more often putting you into a lot of difficult decisions. Or at least AXs hands.

      Best Regards.
