      hi there
      u need to post more info about the hand for u to get a decent comment, never the less, AJs vs a 4x stack there are indeed some factors to consider a call

      1.kind torney// buy-in
      2.blinds level // number of big blinds;
      3.position in table;
      4. FR ou SH
      5. tourney stage - early- medium - late/itm - FT

      It comes down to one suggestion: Think less result oriented!

      If a player pushes every hand and you are holding AJ being last to act, you obviously have to call his allin.

      If he is really pushing any two cards you are ahead with 64% equity against his 36%:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    36.41%  35.38%   1.03% { zufällig }
      MP3    63.59%  62.55%   1.03% { AJo }

      Sure, in the end he will win in 36% of the times, but since you win the majority of the showdowns you still have to call. There is no way your edge could ever be big enough to give up on a 64% equity spot.

      In the end you should be really happy with his play as well as with yours. The outcome might not be what you were looking for. Still you have been doing everything right, while your opponent did everything wrong. This is exactly what you want.

      You sure don't want opponents that play perfectly according to calculations and think about what they are doing all the time. This is not where your money comes from.
