      Preflop is ok. Postflop if you think you can get him to fold Jx or overpair with your push then push is ok, on flop I would reraise a bit more than 3x for more fold equity though, if he has something like 99 I want him to fold that on flop. Freecard wouldn't be a bad choice either on turn as he called the flopraise and turn is a blanco.

      I didn't really want fold equity on the flop itself, I wanted him to push me there. I was a slight favorite against AJ anyway.

      fold preflop ....
      reraise flop too 9$.
      Then checkbehind turn, because i don´t belive, that he will fold an OP/AJ.

      If I reraised the flop to 9, I had no fold equity on the turn. Now I still did.
      Still believe he held AJ though :)

      You usually don't have enough, if any, fold equity against AJ/overpair on turn here because most people on this limit are ready to play for stacks on drawy board with such hand, he propably had QJ/KJ or maybe 99 or TT. There are many advantages for raising more on flop:

      a) with potsizeraise you usually get him to fold drawing hands, against which you don't want to play with your hand, and also you get him to fold hands like QJ,99,TT against which you are favourite on flop, but if turn card is blanco, you're not favourite anymore.

      b) If you raised to 6$, like you did here and villain pushes AI directly on turn when the turncard was blanco, you're not getting the odds to call anymore. With bigger raise on flop you are also getting the right odds on turn to call even if villain pushes directly all-in.

      c) With bigger raise on flop, you also make the pot bigger. So when you do hit one of your outs by the river, you also usually can get the max value out of it.

      Ok, next time, I'll reraise bigger on the flop, or call (if I feel I'm still a slight dog).

      This time however, I had to push ;)
      The flop you dream of :D
