      Might not be according to SHC, dunno, but I'd raise QJo on the button.
      As played I would check behind the turn and reevaluate the river.
      It might look a bit weak, but look at the diffrence in potsizes on the turn and river. You dont want that big a pot with a mediocre pair and reasonable kicker.

      Kind regards,

      QJo is a fold on the SHC in this situation. QJs is a call.

      Agree with the check behind on the turn. The straight draw on the board got there, so I'd try and get to showdown as cheaply as possible.

      And I believe the SHC is not a very good strategy, maybe for the lower limits it's OK though. I'd raise that QJo PF in this situation, but since this is NL2, stick to the SHC and you should do just fine.

      Against an unknown I'd rather check/behind and reevaluate the river.

      But against a passive player I'd play bet/fold on the turn.

      As played, IMO, you have to call the river bet because of the odds you're getting.

      Its ok. If your opponent is pretty passive, you may fold to the c/r on the turn.
