      Preflop: ok
      Flop: you have a pair of jacks, but with queen on a board, you should bet on a flop round 0,6-0,7, what you did, but after you got checked, you play check/fold.

      Hi Wowadvisor,

      Preflop and postflop continuation bet is okay but only continue to bet on the Turn with Toppair or better!

      In this case you only have middle pair which is not enough to go all-in. Just save your money next time

      Best regards,
      Gerv
