middle pair hands without much else

Hey guys I'm looking to improve my playing of hands like JJ52, TT73, 9934, etc. Specifically at the 6 max level, curious how to play these hands. Seems like JJxx is good enough to open from anywhere, but I could be wrong.

99xx seems like a fold in early position, open in late position. TT? Not sure.

Curious what you guys think

Re: middle pair hands without much else

try the double pair grind. seems to work out better .
you can obviously go wider on the button but I recommend you not to play one of the listed hands.

Medium pairs like 99-JJ are pretty weak hands unless they're double suited & well connected and even then it's not like they play well in many situations that don't involve them flopping top set.

I would not recommend opening all JJxx combos from most positions
