      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with Q :diamond: J :spade:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.30, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.90

      I have two blockers. Is it enough reason to 3bet?

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: The short answer: yes. The J is not a full blocker but can block some hands that he likes (AJs, JJ).

      The long answer: depends on the opponent :)

      Why? Because a hand like QJo, when called, is usually dominated postflop. However at these limits people call a lot and play very passively postflop and thus we can usually take down a pot without much.

      However if we flop a Q or J we should not play a big pot.
