      PartyGaming - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 7 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG+1: $3.27
      MP: $4.30
      CO: $2.31
      BTN: $2.28
      SB: $2.26
      Hero (BB): $2.09
      UTG: $1.26

      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has A:heart: J:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $0.08, fold, fold, fold

      CO wins $0.05

      Is this a really weak play. I know AJ doesn't play well in 3-bet pots, nor does it play well OOP, but is it still strong enough to defend and see a flop?

      Hello joeldowey123,

      Usually CO will have rather wider range and therefore depending on the opponent I'd act accordingly. Against some I might even prefer 3betting and not for value always, sometimes even as bluff. And against some I might even prefer just Calling and playing postflop. AJ is definitely a great hand to play with and most likely are even ahead vs CO range.

      Best regards.
