      Hi,

      Do you think calling with QJs in BU is good?
      how do you react VS a small/big 3bet range?

      Thanks.

      Do we know anything about the player? Otherwise calling here is not good at all because we play blind, without initiative in a big pot with an easily dominated hand.

      As played we can always float or raise flop to attack his overcards (AQ/AK) with our 2 overs and backdoors.

      As played turn bet is mandatory and the size is good.

      Hi BogdanPS,

      If we know nonthing about the player, what is the calling range here?

      Thanks.
