      At least I hit my A on the flop and what do i get. UTG bets out strong, put him on AJ, and make normal re-raise. If he had full stack I could then fold to his push, but he is just medium stack, so here we go again...

      You have TPTK on a dry board. I´d play the same. If he hit his set...tough luck X(

      How can you put him on AJ, not like you have tons of information. If he seems reasonable I would much more likely put him on a set and if he is a donk he probably has a two pair most of the time. I would fold to his threebet. Most opponents have stronger hand if it's a dry board then if the board is drawy.
      If the board was twosuited he could be doing this with a flushdraw now he cant.

      Oops just took note on his stacksize the call is automatic.

      WP but I think it's bad for your play to put opponents on a specific hand with so little information or even a lot of information, an opponent never has a specific hand before showdown, he has a range. I thought of specific hands in the past and still do occasionally and after reviewing hands I played this way I tend to call way to easily and fold way to often.

      Try to think of a number of hands he could have instead and if he has one of them give yourself a pat on the back, it's much more fun this way cause you will be right more often
