      I don't like calling preflop with AJ because of reverse implied odds.

      Thorsten don´t like bet/call pf with AJ.
      Because you´re too often dominated by AQ, AK- if you hit your A or QQ, KK, AA, if you hit your J.
      SO often you´re putting all your money in with worse hands (reverse implied odds) of you hit your A or J.

      I see, and this is exactly what happened, player who won had KK.
      Thanks for the feedback.

      yeah i've stopped calling raises with AJ.

      of course that rule isn't in cement, but i tend to fold it more often than not though unless the situation is just right.


      i like it to open, but as these kind people have said, you're too often dominated to call a raise.
