      I think 3 bets value with such hand is too much. Check-fold river I think, or check-fold. Depends on situation, vs unknown ch-f.

      And it is a very lose preflop, unless there is a huge fish behind us.

      Hey,

      I think from MP1 in FR wth QJs you don't have 3 streets postflop on this board. You can probably start by checking flop and going from there. You keep the pot smaller and induce more bluffs that why. Have you ever considered doing that?
