      3bet or fold pre-flop.

      I'm interested to hear what Veriz says. AJ doesn't play well oop multiway so I'd squeeze or fold pre... But squeezing is something I'm trying to work on so not sure if my squeezing play (in general) is optimal.

      Post flop is fine.

      Hi,

      I disagree about 3-betting or folding pf. I think 3-betting would be best option against CO loose open and BU call. Although call should also be fine. AJs is doing fine against CO raising range, that likely are around 25%
      Hold'em Simulation ?

      AsJs 58.34% 264,218,808 24,972,245
      25% 41.66% 185,117,155 24,972,245

      So it is not wrong to get more money in the pot with the best hand, but if you are not comfortable playing oop big pots, then call is also fine (you have better hand and getting good odds to see the flop)

      I would very likely lead that flop. On equity wise AJs is not definitely ahead, but it is very hard him to call with worse hands than Qx and he should definitely fold worse hands than 8x. Also if you get called you can hit spade, J, K, A which ones you can barrel again and often take pot down.

      If you want to play standard ABC play then c/f without any equity is also fine :)

      best regards,
