      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , J:heart:
      MP2 calls $0.05, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.22, BB raises to $0.39, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.17.

      Hero checks, BB bets $1.2 (All-In), Hero calls $1.20.

      Turn: ($3.23) 6:club:
      River: ($3.23) Q:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.23

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of aces (Ah Jh)
      BB shows (Qd 3c)

      Hero wins with a pair of aces (Ah Jh)

      BB had 32bb. AJ is a fold for me against 3b OOP, but this time it was min3b and I had great odds to call. I decided I would play for stacks if I flop TP.

      Was it right to play the hand this way? Or still fold to min3b?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      Preflop: Against his stack we can't Call it profitable. Either I am shipping it directly or just folding.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to add as you even called preflop, we can't hit much better.

      Best Regards.
