      PreFlop: I would have raised QJo. CO post BB without seeing his cards and he only checked, so its likely that his cards are not worth playing. Additionally you would have postition and initiative with a raise.

      PostFlop: I would have played bet/fold after SBs check/raise. Don't see the reason in calling here, you could already be beat and there are many cards you don't want to see.

      Turn: Easy fold on his bet.

      Hello sebsejr,

      Preflop: Rather isolate preflop vs CO dead-blind poster. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Fold it right on flop. Exactly those are the spots why you should rather avoid playing it passively preflop. Since you will play very likely your TP wrong like you Bet/Call while you didn't even know the opponent. He could easily have a lot stronger hand here. You most likely don't beat that many hands.

      Best regards.
