Even if JJ substantially raised (which is a debatable move in any
case), a multi-way pot might be giving correct odds for 78 to call in
late position. As CJ said connectors can prove dangerous if a
coordinated board falls. I played 75d the a few nights back and the
flop was 86J, turn came 4 and I re-raised QQ all-in and broke him.
Sunday heads-up I won with 85o with a 88x5 board.

The point of the original story tho' was that most people holding two
pair wouldn't necessarily connect that the board low-pairing could
break their hand to an overpair.
