      Position:
      Stack
      UTG+1:
      $12.09
      Hero:
      $10.10

      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J:diamond: , A:spade:
      UTG+1 raises to $0.20, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 3 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.35) 8:heart: , A:club: , 9:spade: (2 players)
      UTG+1 bets $1.50, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $2.85

      I should fold pre-flop, but as I decided to play, then I might re-raise for information. He bet out flop very big:
      a) I´m against AK and way behind
      b) I´m against KK and way ahead
      c) I´m against set and way behind.

      Since I don´t like to get stack with AJ, I decided to fold.

      just use the SHC!!!! ITS A VERY EASY FOLD PREFLOP!!!.

      it is absurd to raise preflop a UTG raise (AQ+ JJ+ or something like that) with AJ.
      And then: U hit one of the best possible boards and c/f??

      no just fold preflop.

      How can you give credit someone, who is min-raising. Against normal raise I would autofold, but since he min-raise I could easily be ahead his range, so I would fold better hand pre-flop.

      you are never ahead against his calling range. And his calling range dominates you hard. Reraising with a PP would be okay but not with AJ (probably one of the worsest reraising hands in this situation)
      But even if you are ahead, why do you fold on this perfect flop? This is not logic. If you think you are ahead against his range you must call on the flop.
      But as you already said, you will be dominatet by AK/AQ very often........

      So then it is fine raise pre-flop with AQ on that situation?:)
