      MP2 ($0.96)
      MP3 ($4.23)
      CO ($2.26)
      BTN ($3.61)

      Dealt to Hero J:heart: A:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.12, UTG+2 calls $0.12, Hero calls $0.12, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.12, SB calls $0.10, fold

      Is it right to play AJs as a speculative hand? (means fold if dont hit the flush)
      Or AJs is enough strong to play as a raiser?

      Hello kiromanAAKK,

      Of course it is, you can even sometimes just win the pot yourself if you do hit. It's pretty hard to do the 3bet for value, rather you are doing it as bluff and for fold equity.

      But on the 2nd hand rather raise 4xBB.

      Best regards.
