      Was a little tired. Basically decided to play call flop, shove turn. Only problem, that I´m only beating AJ. On that board easy bet/fold? Player notes:

      you're basically only beating a total bluff or a small ace. Chances are you're against a small set in this situation, but I may be wrong.

      Some players have a very narrow "open-limp call" range...small PP's which they play fit or fold on the flop. Perhaps a relatively small 3bet on the flop ($8 more) and fold to a shove. I don't really know though since putting in 40 BB's and folding doesn't seem too good. I'd need some sort of a read to be able to fold this though.

      BTW, it is useful to include the no. of hands you have on villain since AF does take a little while to converge. eg. If you have 500 hands on villain then you might be able to fold on the flop since this guy probably NEVER raises the flop without the goods.

      How are the games on FT, I've heard that they're pretty tough. Are there still enough fishes ?

      There are fishes, but a lot of TAG-s. Fullring games are better than Party, but SH games seems tougher.

      Call flop reevaluate turn. Given his low aggression and the PS bet on the turn, its an easy fold.
