      Hi ! Villain's stats over only 17 hands 76/44/4.7/33.3 . However, I've played against him before I bought HM2 and I had him labeled as a fish.

      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $15.39 (153.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J A
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.10, CO raises to $0.45, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.35, MP calls $0.35

      Flop: ($1.40) T A J (3 players)

      Final Board: T A J T 2
      Hero mucked J A and lost (-$8.87 net)
      MP showed K Q and won $17.78 ($8.91 net)

      I don't really like preflop call OOP with the offsuit AJ.. I would usually 3bet and only call the suited version.

      As played, I think check/raising is heavily overplaying your hand there. You never get action from anything else that you beat aside from AT and JT that you already block. I would lead big to ensure I get value and a bet in vs the limp/caller who is going to be the target. As played, not much else you can do on the turn, though I prefer shoving myself since there are plenty of bad cards for you.
