$10 NL HE Full Ring: QJs makes top pair against loose(?) villain (Part I)
First time poster in the HA sections. Please bear with my basic questions -- sensible input would be appreciated.
I would like to review a hand that I have played just now. I would like to present it in stages, if that is acceptable, as there were several decisions to make; I am brand spanking new to cash (save your petty requests for my screen-name, etc.), and I want to know what I'm doing wrong.
One could argue that the first thing I am doing wrong is playing without PT3 or HEM; I don't think I am playing enough volume to warrant this (yet). Comments/suggestions here would also be appreciated.
Thanks again, and without further ado:

Hero (CO) ($11.70)
: Hero is CO with J[image: http://www.flopturnriver.com/pokerforum/images/smilies/heart.gif], Q[image: http://www.flopturnriver.com/pokerforum/images/smilies/heart.gif]
, Hero bets $0.30
, Button raises to $0.80
, 2 folds
1. Raising with QJs with a tight-table image is reasonable? I was folding the last twelve hands or so (this is roughly twenty-hands in the session).
2. Do I call the Button? He's been splashing around in many pots (perhaps I could say something more definitive with a software tracker...hmm).
