      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has Q:heart: J:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 calls 1 BB, fold, Hero raises to 5 BB, fold, fold, fold, BB calls 4 BB, fold

      Raise to have the betting lead.

      Flop: (11.4 BB, 2 players) 4:heart: 7:club: 5:club:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      wet board not much FE.

      Turn: (11.4 BB, 2 players) Q:spade:
      BB bets 6 BB, Hero calls 6 BB

      Got there I have to call.

      River: (23.4 BB, 2 players) Q:club:
      BB bets 12 BB, Hero calls 12 BB

      Calling is the only play here.

      Is raising this limp pot ok?

      Flop: This is close with the backdoor flush draw. I don't mind cbetting but with Q:sJ I would definitely give up.

      Turn: Call and don't fold on most rivers

      River: Could you raise here? I think you could consider raising with AQ. KQ and QJ seems a little too weak to raise without dynamic. Of course if we knew that villain has KK/AA in his range then raising here with KQ would be fine but we don't know that.
