      Hello diversfx,

      Do you really think that there are that many worse hands which Call you anyways here if you raise? Only reasonable hands are flushdraws, although while we can't always expect him to have that type of hand and he could easily even have a better Ax, I'd rather just Call it and reevaluate on further streets. Even sometimes I am folding AJ from MP, since I don't want to see squeeze from LP or from blinds.

      Best regards.

      Just keep doing the hard work and try to improve and you will likely be +. :) I am somewhat running as well pretty badly this month, a lot of setups like AA vs QQ, Q on river, FHvsFH, flushVSflush, set over set and so on. But I am just trying to keep playing since the poker ain't for one day profit. :) You will earn profit in long run.
