      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      MP: $1.50 (75 bb)
      CO: $3.36 (168 bb)
      BTN: $4.85 (242.5 bb) VPIP: 78, PFR: 31, 3B: 11, AF: 1.2, Hands: 32
      Hero (SB): $2 (100 bb)
      BB: $1.02 (51 bb)
      UTG: $2 (100 bb) VPIP: 26, PFR: 14, 3B: 0, AF: 1.2, Hands: 42

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J A
      UTG raises to $0.07, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.07, Hero calls $0.06, BB folds

      Should I fold AJ when OOP, just because UTG could have a good hand?

      Flop: ($0.23) T 5 J (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, BTN bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10, UTG folds

      I wasn't reraising, because he was playing aggressive and was constantly betting and reraising flops, and I still had the pre-flop raiser behind me.

      Turn: ($0.43) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.14, Hero calls $0.14

      He had 100 cbet turn, so he easily could have just kept betting without the K, and the bet wasn't that big either, for 2/3pot I would have folded against.

      River: ($0.71) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Just checking, hoping to see a free showdown.

      Results: $0.71 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: T 5 J K 2
      BTN mucked 3 J and lost (-$0.31 net)
      Hero showed J A and won

      Is ok to call A,J sometimes even oop.

      On the flop you shouldn't really be concerned about the initial raiser (since he didn't CB, he is probably weak). If he is aggresive and bluffing, you could just let him bluff on the turn as well.

      First if he is that aggresive, if he would bet 3/4 you shouldn't fold, only if he bets again big on the river. you said it yourself he could do this without a K.
      As played, I would reraise to 40 on the turn: his bet is really weak and he probably does not have a K. If he shoves I would fold.

      On the river as played, I would call a bet depending on its size.

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Preflop: Don't play such hands in multiway pots. Especially being even OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: I would start protecting my hand right on the flop by betting myself there rather than let them Check behind.

      Best Regards.
