      actually it's fold preflop.
      if you call, then reraise/fold flop.
      you got really hard hand. utg+1 bet's cbet into two players and utg2 calls so you can even fold you're hand on flop if you have a tight statistics for the utg1

      I would fold Preflop and reraise the flop. You have top pair mid kicker and a strong draw. Calling here is weak and doesnt protect you from a possible flush draw.

      With QJo OOP you are absolutely nowhere.

      As played check/raise flop is better. I will even may go broke here with SD and TPGK vs. unknown and on NL5. Please give stacks from now on. This is important information.

      But still check/ raising turn is fine with the backdoor FD.

      Make note for his play

      fold pre.

      as played I don't like raising flop, you would only narrow down the opponents ranges. I just call flop and see where it takes me. With this turncard I like to either bet/3bet or c/r. second nuts is good enough.
