Playing pocket jacks (or Jiggities as Brad Owen calls them!) doesn’t have to be as difficult as some new and even experienced poker players make it.

If you 3-bet and get 4-bet, you can play them the same way you would play pocket 9’s pre-flop if your opponent is tight and just fold.

If you think your opponent is more loose-aggressive and you have enough equity, you can very easily call pre-flop and find good boards to call down on, remember that you aren’t committed to calling any more bets post-flop.

Find good spots to continue vs the right player types and vs the tight poker players you can definitely fold! That Old Man Coffee who has only raised once in the last four hours probably always has it when he cold 4-bets you.
