      Hi guys. I am reviewing my game and it seems that QJo is not working well for me in defense. Especially on SB.


      Would you or not advise passive call with QJo vs BU/CO or?

      It seems I fail to extract any value when I hit, but loose significantly when I hit, but villain hits stronger... TP vs set, etc.

      On the other hand QJ should dominate enough of the hands in BU and CO opening range.

      From SB i tend to play it as a 3b or fold hand for the most part because you gonna get squeezed quite a bit as well as BB might just call and you gonna end up in gayest position ever 3way w hand that will get dominated very often once you hit and get lots of heat.

      I think calling OOP puts you in a difficult spot more often than not.
