NL10 QJs 3Bet Spot

Hey Guys,

today I post a float/bluff.
I believe the way, how I play the hand, could work. In this case not
Please read my thoughts (Spoiler) after you check the history.

888 Poker - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 8 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

Hero (BTN): $11.02
SB: $10.59
BB: $15.28 19/8 (36 Hands) no reads about defend blinds
UTG: $10.32
UTG+1: $10.00
MP: $5.40
MP+1: $10.83
CO: $10.47

SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q J

fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, fold, BB raises to $1.05, Hero calls $0.75


Flop: ($2.15, 2 players) 7 K 8
BB bets $0.70, Hero calls $0.70


Turn: ($3.55, 2 players) 3
BB checks, Hero bets $1.50, BB raises to $3.87, fold


BB wins $6.23

Is this a possible way to play this hand or burning money?

i would of checked the turn and folded to the turn bet if he bet first on the turn. if you think his 3 bet range is wide you should have some good reason for it, like if it shows up in the stats and if you don't have a good reason to think his 3 bet is wide then fold QJs

Re: NL10 QJs 3Bet Spot

I don't mind the pre-flop call so long as you have a plan for the flop. This is the sort of hand that can get people in big trouble. You're really hoping to flop some good draws. The high card value of your hand is more precarious as it can lead to domination situations so you need to be wary of how far you're willing to continue on say a Jxx flop. flop nothing. Time to check fold. Yes you have some back door draws but they're really only of value if you can combine them with some fold equity. Given that you're the one calling a c-bet then those are not reasons to continue with the hand.

Re: NL10 QJs 3Bet Spot

Do you need to get tricky at 10NL and/or is it wise?
QJ is a hand dominated by lots of combos in a 3b range: AQ, AK, AJ, KQ...if he's light KJ
But what reason other than bu vs bb do you have to believe he's light? You say you have no read. What hands do you dominate in a standard 3b range from the bb?
One might consider this FancyPlaySyndrome?
On the turn, you might rep the K vs an underpair, but what if he calls one time? Do most 10NL players like to call?
Bluff less? Call less? @ 10NL?
