      CO showed T J and won $36.35 ($17.16 net)
      Hero showed A J and lost (-$19.19 net)

      Vilain is a nit 17/12 23% steal CO. I hit TPTK and decide to include it in my range of C/R broke vs his stack. Good play ?

      Yeah, I think it will be fine. A short stack stacks off quite wide post and pre he still opens wide enough from CO. It's a bit marginal with AJo to call, esp in SB though but as played pre, postflop is fine. You shouldn't get much credit, you block AA so your have a very strong hand vs his range and stack.
