For me at the lowest if the micro stakes cash games - you played this very well. Our villan should have realized we are not calling a large turn bet with a draw very often, most of the time it's a better J or an overpair. But these low level players fail to recognize such a thing and they just fire fire fire all the time with top pair lol. I like the way you played this hand. We could be losing this hand to certain 2pr combos, weird flopped straights, sets, etc - but our hand is generally too strong to fold at these levels. I would call down here with QQ as well.

I also think this hand is well played. I don't get the blockers reference though. We want to block hands that beat us when calling down. There are no Qx hands can V have that beat us. We are actually blocking QJ which is bad since we want V to be blasting off with QJ. Perhaps your question is that since we block some hands V might take this line with can we still call down? I think the answer is still yes as AJ, KJ, JT, the remaining QJ, and maybe even J8s can all take this line.

I am definitely calling that river. I like the way you played the hand. The only thing I would do differently is to bet bigger on the flop, as it's a pretty dynamic board. So maybe 7 BB instead of 5 BB.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: Should we bluff catch here? (have blockers)
I dont see that often player that 3 barrels draw all so you block some. You beating few QT, XJ, and few and 10% random bluf and you are beaten by T8s,86s,,77.66 (few JJ). SO question how often he will will rase and bets 3three street with JX.
