      Hello jeszkar,

      Preflop: Don't flat-call such hands, especially having so many opponents behind you. The hand is horrible for multiway pots. And obviously UTG so often dominates your range.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much you could do there, most likely were against better Ax hand.

      Best Regards.

      Fold or call the only two possible action. And like I said I tired to I have to fold my every single hand.

      i would have folded this hand, also because he is short stack, if you call and bet you should call him down, he can also have A T....

      Why? What about 3bet?

      The raise came from UTG, yeah it a small raise but it still come from UTG. It's mean he can get strong hand, so I don't want to 3-bet him. But he raise small so maybe it worths a shoot to see the flop.

      As I said already, AJo ain't a multiway hand, either 3bet/Fold it or just fold it directly. You answered your play already yourself with saying that he has a strong range there, what do you hope to hit then? If you hit J then you don't know if you are ahead, if you hit your Ace then neither you don't know if you are ahead. So what you hoping to hit? :D And with just Calling and hoping to hit you wont play the hand profitable.
