      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, J.
      CO posts deadblind, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.20, SB calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.7) J, 2, T (3 players)
      SB checks, MP2 bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.60, SB folds, MP2 calls $0.40.

      Turn: ($1.9) 3 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $1.37, MP2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.9.

      Standart call pre flop i believe, since one player posted dead blind i thought that he was just trying to pick up the pot and my QJs is ahead of range. I was also IP, so i think it was just standart. What do you think about my post flop play?

      I like the semi bluff on the flop, but once he's called I don't know if you should barrel here. He isn't folding a better jack or anything stronger, and he also isn't calling with anything weaker other than a flush draw of his own very often.

      I'd rather check behind and then call any bet on the river I think.

      I like how you played your hand
      I would also b/c turn, since he can still have there a lot of draws and although he is likely not folding there AJ+ you still have enough equity to bet yourself for protection and if you hit good river card then shove for value
