      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:diamond: , J:heart:
      Hero raises to $0.20, 2 folds, BU raises to $0.35, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.77) A:spade: , 6:spade: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.05, Hero raises to $0.75, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.87

      Any idea what his line could mean? All seemed pretty strange to me.

      I raised just because his bet seemed so weak.

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Preflop: Sometimes people do like raise this way his strong holdings like KK+. Although while he seems to be pretty loose and with huge PFR, I wouldn't be surprised when he even does such a play with weaker hands. Although it's pretty close to Call here or not. With AJ you just wont hit enough to satisfy it when you even don't know the opponent. And every often your Ace will be dominated as well by better aces. Therefore I might even sometimes prefer folding here unless I know the opponent better.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to add, against his small bet I'd rather as well Check/Raise it and try to protect.

      Best regards.
