I think if you're gonna make a play at a pot like this in early position, you should be doing it with the lower end of the spectrum. Raise up a hand like 75s from early/mid position. Easy to get off of if it misses, and guaranteed to take down a monster if it hits. QJo is too easy to get cracked by the other big cards out there.

I think you're right on. Like you said, we know the all-in call was a poor play, but now that I look at it, the raise or the play itself is questionable.

What could I have wanted to hit? Q? J? Either way, just like you say, I would probably be up against AQ, AJ, KQ, or KJ. Hit 2 pair like I did, and it's just about down to gambling on if he hit top pair or not and buying the pot. We see how that worked out.

Excellent comments, duly noted, time to re-evaluate some hands.
