      Can a call preflop be justified despite us being OOP? The reason being that we are quite likely to play this hand 4way and it should be a good hand in a mwp + two of the opponents have weak ranges and are likely to call us down with worse hands on the flop.

      The plan on the flop, of course, is to donkbet toppairs.

      Hello Avatars91,

      I like your play here and seems to be fine. QJs is a very powerful hand which has huge implied odds postflop in multiway pots, even if we are OOP.

      Best Regards.
