      Do you have any reads on UTG+1? I think you should just fold AJo preflop. I would assume that most players have a very strong raising range from UTG+1. AJo is crushed by such a range. There are also 5 players left to act behind you and they can do so many things like squeezing, or calling along. And your playability is really poor postflop in a multiway Flop.

      Once you get squeezed, easy fold.
