      Full Tilt Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
      9 players

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is Button with J A
      5 folds, CO raises to $2, Hero calls, 2 folds.

      Flop: A J Q ($4.75, 2 players)
      CO bets $3, Hero raises all-in $10.5, CO folds.
      Uncalled bets: $7.5 returned to Hero.

      Final pot: $10.75

      CO is 10/9/4 over 830 hands, ATS = 23

      On the previous hand, I was sitting on the sb and he tried to steal, where i restole him. Because of this, I decided to call here as I see him stealing more tightly the hand right after. I dont know if this makes any sense and so I decided to post the hand :)

      I'd resteal again since if you just call in this spot you will often find yourself folding on the flop (sometimes with the best hand too).

      Well, I don't call pf in sss. I limp with pp's, that's all.

      23 ats is quite high but he did it from CO, where he's probably tighter. If we assume range of 15% (A8+, KT+, 66+) you're even. Can you put him on such a range? If you do, push.

      1. Calling is not an option with the SSS. ;)
      2. 23 ATS means that he steals 15% to 18% from the CO-Position, maybe even tighter, so that we should respect his raises from there a little bit more.
      3. When you restole in the hand before he is more likely to call with his raising hand, if he has a quality hand.

      Conclusion: You either push or fold here Preflop. I personally would prefer to fold, since AJ is to marginal in this spot on this limit here to re-steal.
