      Hello...
      I´m completely lost on this hand. The more I look at it the more I don´t know how to play it... :(
      On the flop, the bet was so small that it was worth it to call.
      I was squeezed and Vilain1 was playing like a maniac, calling every hand and raising left and right, so a c-bet would not work.

      After that,I had good odds on all streets, but again not enough to play it like a big draw, with that maniac after me.

      Pot is very small, so I don´t mind calling it down.

      I'd fold the hand on the turn after villain2's reraise.
      You're getting good odds, but your action doesn't close the betting round (you may get raised again) and the board is paired.
      They both played this hand very strange and I would have no idea where I stand.

      I thought so, sat at the same table as you a couple of times and you weren't doing too good. I'm not doing too good either, 10K+ hands and I'm breaking even. But good luck on moving up again.

      Preflop I fold AJ from this position. On the flop I reraise to represent an overpair. If I cannot take down the pot, I'm done with the hand.

      AJs from MP1 is playable according to the SHC, that´s why I´ve been betting. From which position would you think I should play it?

      @Faye6891, what is your table name? I don´t remember seeing you around :D

      Personally, I don't think that AJ is a good hand from MP1 if the table is not very tight. The problem is, that you are dominated by AQ/AK/QQ+ - if you get called, it is very difficult to play. In position, this is not such a big problem as you can control the pot size, but OOP it is really hard to play against reasonable players.
