      Pacific, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 7 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      Hero (SB): $3.76 (37.6 bb)
      BB: $10 (100 bb)
      MP1: $10.23 (102.3 bb)
      MP2: $13.61 (136.1 bb)
      MP3: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $28.37 (283.7 bb)
      BTN: $2.43 (24.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A J
      MP1 raises to $0.20, MP2 calls $0.20, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.15, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.70) A K 7 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.10, MP2 raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, MP1 raises to $1.40, 2 folds

      Results: $2.95 pot ($0.14 rake)
      Final Board: A K 7
      Hero mucked A J and lost (-$0.95 net)
      MP1 mucked and won $2.81 ($1.86 net)
      MP2 mucked and lost (-$0.95 net)

      I don't like MP1(38/25)'s minraise because it sometimes monster or vague hand.So I called this hand..
      But even it's Ax flop, I had to fold because I thought MP1 reraise.
      If I play this, I should trash it and I think it's best to bet 1.2 on preflop and
      fold MP1's shove.
      Is it ok?

      I don't like your call at all. I am pretty confident this minraise is superweak so why don't you 3bet him? If he 4bets, you can fold and take a note of it. Waiting to let it confirm he either has a vague hand or a monster hand is an approach that I don't like because you sacrifice EV/value for information
