      Heya,

      I like preflop, definitely at least defending AJs (prob not good enough to 4bet for value though) and vs that sizing with these stacks I would recommend tightening up on BU (because of his 3bet) and then just almost never folding to 3bets with those sick odds and position vs a wide range.

      Postflop, just give up there.. you have no equity, you don't block anything, you don't rep much either imo. I would play back with at least some good backdoor draw... Not a lot of equity but at least quite clean equity. AJs is amongst the worst hands you can have on this flop, isn't it? If you raise that, you raise just about everything you defend. That's usually not a good idea!
