      Problem with QJo is that you can be often dominated by KJ,AJ,AQ,KQ and stuff. Moreover you always have to worry about overcards (K,A)

      From CO+, raising QJsuited by default is fine against easy opponents.

      As played, c/f the Flop since many people will call your Flop bet with SDs, FDs, Toppairs which means you do not know if you are ahead on the Turn hence you will most likely check/fold there HU//Multiway
