      Preflop: Hero is SB with A J
      UTG raises to $0.30, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.90) 8 Q T (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.90, UTG calls $0.90, Hero raises to $9.70 and is all-in, BB calls $4.56 and is all-in, UTG calls $8.80

      Turn: ($25.76) 9 (3 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($25.76) 3 (3 players, 2 are all-in)

      PRE: thought about squeezing but decided to flat coz they're suited :)

      FLOP: never know how to play these monsters, call down until i hit?

      raise the flop to pot size and jam any turn?

      as you can see my default line is ship it! both of them looked like they caught a piece of the flop,

      never sure what to do :(

      Hi.

      I think it's fine to call with AJs. On the Flop I think our combodraw is strong enough to play for stacks. We have 55% equity vs any one pair hand.

      Question is whether we should want to raise smaller to like 3$ or just push? I don't think there's a huge difference here and while pushing may look more like a draw, I rather just push at NL10 cos in the eyes of more simple minded players, large bet = strength and small bet = weakness. I see no reason to have a balanced raise-size here.

      Nice hand.

      if we were to raise $3 and get two calls, how do we play the turn?

      I'll just jam the Turn and that looks super strong so they may fold their one pair hands. Pray we get folds from both of them. If we get called, we have ~30% equity still so that seems reasonable.

      Also, I think if any of them bet themselves, we are probably going to be committed anyway, so I prefer to be the one putting the money in and hoping they fold rather then check and then having to call off my stack anyway.
