Poker/Poker Hand Question



I've had occasion where I was dealt JQ off suit.  
The flop came JQQ, turn was another Q and the river another J

My question is, being that I have quad Qs, do the other three Jacks matter at all?

Thanks for your help!

Technically not.

Texas Hold'Em is about having the best five card hand. If you have QJ and the community ends up as QQQJJ, then you're holding the absolute nuts. You can't be beat. Your kicker in the hand makes no difference, seeing as noone else can hold a Q.

Your hand will be Quad Qs, J kicker. The other two Js do not play. Remember, five card hand.
