      Start out folding pf, QJ is not the hand that you would liek to play oop against raise.
      You should bet turn and bet river or c/c turn and c/rai on the river.

      it was up against a loose player who always liked to bet flop from what i had seen.

      but i will try to remember that, thanks!

      apart from that you are saying i played this right?

      (edit:) was it the right amount to bet?

      If you limp/call from UTG with QJ i would also isolate raise the beejeebus out of you and bet almost every flop.

      And i personally disagree that you played this right. If we ignore preflop - i would bet flop, bet turn, bet river. And if i get raised on flop i would call that raise. After such turn obv just stick it in and hope he calls with flush or flush draw.
