      Know that i played the hand wrong, but at least i want you to show me my mistakes?
      CO is 24 vpip, 1.5 AF, 60 W$SD, 50 Fold to c-bet, 50 hands.

      I was wondering to re-raise, and on the turn i decided to shove because of my kicker Q.
      Giving CO at least Jx...

      Hi,

      If you want to play this hand , raise preflop. Limping will get punished at some point by the other players because your range is face-up and weak!

      Now on the flop you can call the raise on the Flop, that's fine.

      The Turn is really spew, I would just check and see what CO & BB are doing after you


      Best regards,
      Gerv

      There's no reason to play QJs in MP anyway... I mean you can raise to vary your game but I wouldn't be doing that in micro.

      Aside from that, you were beat from the beginning. I'm assuming you call the bet on the turn? AJ or KJ is the hand I'm putting him on, though any set is possible with that betting pattern. BB was on a midpair.
