      Does your EV increase OOP with a fish coming in BB with AJo? You have to decide that before bringing the 'fish in the pot' argument because you don't always want more people in the pot.

      Why don't you limp in AA from UTG when the table is full of fish? Doesn't it maximize the chances of getting all the fish in the pot?

      Back to this hand: Offsuit broadways are quite hard to play from SB with a call because BB can call or squeeze which is bad for us imo and we don't hit much equity with them, especially if they are gappers. It's not impossible but I don't think it's the most profitable way or I just don't know what else to flat to make my range very profitable there. :)

      I think our EV decreases but increases with AJs. So this is a 3bet?

      Yeah. AJs is way different. Hits a lot more equity, dominates draws. AJo kind of misses often and when it hits, you hit a bluffcatcher quite often or just a slight above average value hand.
