      Such hands like this one am I having so often, that I wonder if there is a way how to prevent them. I guess that at these low limits some people are able to call with anything (and I know that I should be happy to have such donks at my tables), but unfortunately I keep on losing them. AJo is one of the hands I dislike at most, but when the SHC says to play it, then I do so. But after 30K hands of NL10 SSS, my stats for this hand look like this: win%=28%, BBp100H=(0.15) - I find this quiet horrible

      Titan No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05/$0.10 (Titan HH Converter by Kreatief)

      MP1 ($1.55)
      MP2 ($5.32)
      MP3 ($2.90)
      CO ($9.04)
      Button ($11.85)
      SB ($1.75) (Hero)
      BB ($13.21)
      UTG ($9.68)
      UTG+1 ($2.24)
      UTG+2 ($3.29)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:diamond: , A:club:
      6 folds, CO calls $0.10, 1 folds, Hero raises to 0.4, 1 folds, CO calls $0.35,

      Flop: 9:club: , J:heart: , T:diamond: ( $1 )
      Hero bets $0.60, CO raises to 1.3, Hero raises All-In $1.3,

      Turn: A:heart: ( $3.6 )

      River: Q:heart: ( $3.6 )

      Final Pot: $3.42

      Hero has J:diamond: , A:club:
      CO has 8:diamond: , 4:diamond:
      Outcome: CO wins $3.42

      Should I have raised more? I made it only 4BB because of my SB added to it. Are my stats for AJo so bad, that I should think about throwing it away even in late position? Because this hand is simply not working and costs me money... :(

      raise more pre-flop 5BB + 1x limper and then you have an easier decision on flop -> push

      as played you should also push, because your stack:pot ratio is only 1.3:1.

      He open limped from CO that very often means very marginal range, nevertheless, he has a positional advantage. So you have to make him pay more to see the flop.
