      hero lost $5.25

      Should I blufcatch in this spot, cause I dont think I beat any part of his value range and I dont like his big sizing here.
      If im not planning on calling his river bet and there are a bunch of cards I dont like to see, can I consider folding turn, or is it just to weak?

      can´t see how you can show profit pre-flop by raising QJ from UTG if you check back and basically would give up pot that board. I would either fold pre-flop or take much more aggressive line postflop.
      I think turn is easy call, since he would vbaluebet there worse hands, as JJ, TT and also bluff his flushdraws. I would personally call him down. All the draws missed and you need to put him AQ+ to fold your hand- most players it look you have Ax (AK, AJ) with flushdraw so they would both valuebet or bluff quite frequently with worse hands

      best regards,

      QJo open from UTG is marginal and definitely needs a good reason (like weak blinds). I guess BB is kind of a fish so it should be alright.

      Folding River is terrible because he might randomly 2barrel some air. What are you really scared of? The 2 on the River is like the best card in the deck for you besides another Q or J.

      I agree with you not cbetting this Flop cos your fold equity is low.

      I completly agree with everything here, OJo is a marginal open and actually the table conditions were nowhere near to good enough to justify it.
      I just randomly picked up these midsized pots and I see that even thou I only 6-8table max, there are these hands that are very badly played and the way I played doesnt match up with my thoughts reviewing them.
      I just post them here so I can get good advices and it maybe sticks to my mind more. :)
