re: Poker & playing face cards pre-flop
OK, so you're in the sb and you know there is a good chance the BB will push you all in and he has you covered in chips. FOLD PRE FLOP. Wait for a better opportunity. Any ace, any king any pair has you beat, and even if he's bluffing
you probably are only about a 60/40 favorite anyway. Suited QJ isn't a bad hand to see a flop with cheaply, it's not a hand to put all your chips in with unless short stacked which you weren't.
Next time leave off the results of the hand and provide more information, you will get more detailed advice. But I suspect the concensus would still be to fold.
