      Now i tend to fold the hand in preflop.
      If i have AXc i will call.
      If i must play QJs raise better than call.
      UTG2 MP2 is so loose QJs maybe better than them range.
      Fold>raise>call.

      Flop bet better than check? ?(

      What makes you think a suited Ace plays better than QJs? How are you going to play those hands in general like what is your gameplan?

      If you don't know this, just fold preflop because if you dont have an idea how to play your hands postflop, you can be in a lot of trouble

      I valuebet the Flop a 55cents, we play against 2 fishy players here

      I don't expect to get check/raised on the Turn because Khi/Ahi flushes will bet the Turn themselves

      I think a suited Ace can become nuts flushdraw.
      My gameplan is hit two pairs, straightdraw,flushdraw.If i do not hit them i will fold.
      If someone 3bet me behind,i will fold no matter fash call or not.
      If you don't know this, just fold preflop because if you dont have an idea how to play your hands postflop, you can be in a lot of trouble

      It is obviously that i dont know how play this hand,but i want to know.
      I have learn <Before the Flop - When do You Raise?>.
      I know QJs is a speculative hand.But i still want to know how play this hand and why? :)

      You don't hit often enough when calling to make a guaranteed profit.

      Reason it is speculative is because your profit depends on
      1* Hitting something
      2* Having someone stack off vs you
      3* Have sufficient equity ( Your Q:cJ vs A:c2 on a 6:c3:c4 = not good)

      So you need all 3 constantly to grind out a profit which is very hard to do. I mostly squeeze or fold these hands because now you play these hands actively and force a HU pot which is fairly easy

      You can study the bigstack articles to see if you see any info about those hands
