You limp jacks regardless of your position and players you're up against? That seems a bit much.
Full table, everyone called the blinds? Yep, I limp with Jacks. Only real chance I have to win is to spike a jack on the flop (1 in 8.5) and I'm not going to get the pot odds on a raise. Might as well be raising with ducks if you're going to raise with just jacks at a full ring game. Same odds of flopping your set.
I understand limping in with JJ in pokerplaya's posted hand. What I meant though was when you're holding JJ in middle or late position, are you not gonna raise your jacks to thin the field and buy the button? That's the situation I was referring too. If a couple loosey-goosey donkeys limp in and I'm next to act behind them ,I'm definitely throwing out a 4 or 5bb raise.
