      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $39.33
      SB:
      $25.96
      BB:

      $49.64
      MP3:
      $27.75
      CO:

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J, A.
      Hero raises to $1.00, MP3 folds, CO raises to $3.00, 3 folds, Hero raises to $7.50, CO calls $4.50.

      Flop: ($15.35) T, 9, Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $8.25, Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $15.35.

      Villain was 3betting my open raises frequently and I had to fold several times.Here I decide to stand up to him and 4bet.Is betsize to 2.5x standard even OOP and do I have an easy fold if he pushes?The board is terrible so I dont like cbetting but I chose to directly c/f.Other options?

      that´s why I don´t like 4-betting with AJ, since you have to fold to shove
      Personally I don´t get away my hand postflop. You have there oesd+ overcard and you have potsize left with fold equity.
      So to me it is easy shove. If he called smt like 88 he have to fold, he may also fold AJ and against other hands you have around 40% equity
