      CO: $12.47 (124.7 bb)
      BTN: $7.35 (73.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.30, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.80, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($1.75) A 4 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80

      Turn: ($3.35) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $5.75 and is all-in, Hero calls $5.75

      River: ($14.85) K (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $14.85 pot ($0.67 rake)
      Final Board: A 4 9 J K
      Hero showed J A and lost (-$7.35 net)
      BTN showed 8 Q and won $14.18 ($6.83 net)

      Can I play AJo in a 3bet pot oop vs unknown, MP vs BU ?

      preflop is fine.

      flop - should cb here, you need to get the flush draws, worse Ax and PPs to call, just so many hands that will carry on the flop.

      Turn - bet again here, your way to passsive with your hand. You need to be getting value, guy is an unknown also as he raises pre, he is holding something good, you are way ahead at this point imo. check/calling isnt 'wrong' same as betting isnt wrong here, esp as you are following he same line.

      River - :f_eek:

      Hello legand73,

      Preflop: Not really as long the villain ain't even full stacked. He may be trapping you and you are OOP + often dominated.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment.

      Best Regards.
