      QJo is a fold after one limper!

      flop is fine. I'd also bet the turn. The ace is a scarecard and you still have to protect against the flushdraw.
      On the river check behind is fine. Only better hands would call us

      hi
      raise preflop qj on the button when limp to you .( or fold if you feel unconfortable)
      use position and aggression to your advantage
      as played both beting or checking behind the turn is ok
      check behind river is good
