      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.
