      Hey veriz,

      Villain:
      Pretty much unknown. Looks a bit fishy but not that out of line...

      Preflop: I tend to call AJs here because of the bit more playability. I doubt I can call here with no info about him and vs his stack? It even may be for value?

      Flop: Do I cbet here? I think his range might be pretty wide and those stacks play a bit more fit/fold I think. So I only bet halfpot.

      Turn: Std I think? Or just call his bet?

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Preflop: Depends what's the plan of yours with the hand, especially vs his stack. :P Do you do it for value? Plan to go broke?

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine and I don't mind your play. Nice hand! Get it in on the turn rather than Check/Call, draws are more likely to pay you on the turn than river.

      Best Regards.

      I have difficulties with preflop here again... AJ is a hand which can be both 3betted or just called.

      Do we rather just call vs those shorter stacks and only 3bet if we are sure it is for value?

      I don't mind calling vs those guys, especially if you feel confident in postflop play. We also keep his crappy hands in the play which are a lot of weaker Jx/Ax hands. Just if we 3bet there then might be kinda bad to fold to his 3bet. :D Unless we are also doing it accordingly his stack so which means the 3bet has to be smaller, max $2.
