      Poker Room skin
      Pot Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.05/$0.10
      9 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $38.10
      UTG+1: $9.95
      MP1: $2.10
      MP2: $9.95
      Hero: $1.85
      CO: $9.80
      Button: $2.20
      SB: $10.10
      BB: $4

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is MP3 with A:club: J:club:
      4 folds, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $0.4[/color], CO calls $0.4 [color:aaaaaa][/color], 3 folds.

      Flop: T:heart: 7:diamond: 8:diamond: ($0.95, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $0.65[/color], [color:#cc0000]CO raises to $1.3[/color], Hero calls $0.65 [color:aaaaaa](pot was $2.9)[/color].

      Turn: 2:spade: ($3.55, 2 players)
      Hero checks, [color:#cc0000]CO bets $0.15[/color], [color:#cc0000]Hero calls all-in $0.15[/color].

      River: 4:heart: ($3.85, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $3.85)

      Final pot: $3.85

      Only after raising preflop I noticed that my position was MP3 and not LP. My question regards post flop: Should I have fold upon my opp raise or was I pot committed anyway? or should I push post flop? The AJ pocket cards are one of my weakest hands.

      the bet on the flop was correct, however, you should have folded at his raise

      What scar13567 is saying is correct, according to the basic strategy.

      But the right move in this particular situation is to push on flop. You have 2 overcards + gutshot outs. Some of your outs are quite dirty of course, but you still have enough equity to be totally commited after your cbet.

      - we have a solid equity (6 overcard outs + gutshot outs should be considered as solid equity) + fold equity
      - you stack: pot ratio is about 1.3:1 (which is less then 1.5:1) we

      -> should push

      Don`t confuse with situations where you are wa/wb, like TT on AJ8. Here you have to cbet/fold, since you have only 2 outs to improve in case you are behind. (unless your stack is smaller or even the pot)
