      Hey Imimba1,

      Preflop is ok, so long as button is opening wide, otherwise QJo becomes very close to play OOP.

      Flop float is pretty marginal. It's ok given the price you are getting holding 2 overs. You can't really ever take your Q high to showdown however, and in a lot of cases you may struggle to get past the turn. Folding flop is also fine.

      On the turn, given BTN's bet size your check raise is fine. You need to be really aware of which hands you expect to call though, because this is important in determining the best action on the river. In this case villain's range for calling is going to be flush-draws + straight draws. Maybe sometimes Qx and worse pairs.

      I think your river bet is a little on the big side given villain's range. He has a lot of busted flush-draws/straight draws and weak pairs. You want to make sure he definitely pays you off with a worse Qx or a worse pair that called turn hoping to spike 2pair/trips. Maybe 50cents would be a better size. Or if you felt villain would bluff vs a check, then check/call.
