      First I would open with AJo UTG. You can end up getting called by AK, AQ type hands and when an ace come on the flop you are in trouble. I would rather raise 77 88 or 99 or 89s type hands from UTG than AJo.

      When he reraises you from MP1 you have to put him on a good hand. He has too many people after him to be raising with air. So I would just fold it pre.

      As it goes I don't understand the bet size on the flop. All depends on his stats but you are really putting him on QQ+ AKs AKo. So you are beating everything but QQ on the flop. Why would you make it so cheap when he could have AK of diamonds and he has already shown such strength. He knows with your stack size that once you bet you are pretty much committed anyway. You are just inviting too many people to call to see another card. I would have made it $1.10. Two people call your bet who have previously called $0.40 bets pre. If you were trying to induce I don,t think you would need to because pretty much any bet is getting called by KK and AA or AQ and AK with a flush draw.

      I play the same limit at stars. I'll look out for you. Oh and do you always play SS?

      Hello cekpirus88,

      Pokerstars has a auto re-buy. :) Which will add to 100BB automatically if you fall under specific amount, initial buy-in.

      Preflop: Well, of course it's possible to raise with AJo here, although from UTG it's pretty close. After you get raised you should fold your hand, you ain't gonna do very good in this spot vs 3bet.

      As played
      Postflop: Bet it bigger on flop, you need to protect your hand. :( I might even consider just shipping.

      Best Regards.
