      Fold preflop.
      As played fold flop and fold turn as well.

      With basic SSS you never ever call a raise preflop.

      Yes, here I'm going to be strick about it. Just fold preflop, because AJ is a hand that likes to be dominated a lot.

      I'd rather want to play some suited connector than AJ in this spot... but well, not with a short stack either, so it's just a spot to fold it down.

      Of course, on the flop it's just check/fold since you have nothing.

      Oh maybe there is another way. I mean, if it wasn't NL10 but let's say NL100 and the first raiser raised from MP3 / late position you could've squeezed him lightly here. But rather not in this spot ;) . Sorry. But if you want some more info about squeezes (for later purposes) you can search for xarry2's article here.
