      I know this is a lovely situation, but me being on auto pilot followed SSS and did this....

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy hand converter:

      Known players:
      BU:
      $14.55
      SB:
      $9.45
      BB:
      $1.85
      UTG1:
      $1.65
      UTG2:
      $9.35
      MP1:
      $2.35
      MP2:
      $16.05
      MP3:
      $3.30
      CO:
      $11.05

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $0.4, 4 folds, CO calls $0.40, BU calls $0.40, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($1.35) 6, J, J (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.25(All-In), CO folds, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.35.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows four of a kind, jacks (J J)
      Hero wins with four of a kind, jacks (J J).

      According to SSS the allin move was correct here, but this time I disagree with the strategy.

      Now I am thinking that a check would be better here.... Same with flopped nut flushes, and rainbow straights?

      I know that is not SSS, but surely you are wanting them to think they are ahead here, or at least that you don't have a Jack in your hand?

      Actually this is nice hand.

      You can try to slowplay such hands since there's no way for opponents to outdraw you, but if you don't have reads or stats that opponents are aggressive then betting yourself is the best way to extract value from loose-passive fish in microlimits. Therefore I like the way you played this hand against unknown opponents.

      Hello,

      Slowplay at flop :P pretty sure you will get your money on later streets.

      Best regards,

      slowplay check flop check turn and only push river if nobody gives action... you cant hope that someone has hit something on your quad flop so checking here is much better... but i would only do this with sets or better.

      your hand is overpower, don't have to worry to protect your hand, so I think check here is better
