      Pushing with AJo is a bad idea, I wouldn't do that :( and as you see there are many callers so the best idea I guess would be to 2/3 potsize bet or just check/fold. Lets see what judges advice.

      You have 30BB which means you should be out of the table. If you want to wait till the blinds get to you, what I usually do, then the only hands I play are AA and KK and if I am in CO and BTN then also QQ.

      With a stack over 25BB I don't play AJ especially with 4 limpers and being BB you would be out of position post flop. And if you do want to play them, which I don't advice, push pre-flop and try to minimize the no.of opponents on pot.

      Still, I would fold and leave the table when I made it to 25BB stack

      I was waiting for the blinds to come back around so I could leave.
      Can I still play normal SSS when you win over 25BB or just best idea to play QQ+?

      It is possible to play AJ preflop like you did.
      On the flop you have to c/f it, because you are facing many opponents and at least somebody will call you with a pair or a pocket.

      As greyboy said, it's possible, but on the flop you need to check/fold it against multiple oponents.

      But there's of course another way to play a hand like this. With 4 limpers and out of position you may want to push it directly. I think it's possible and playable.

      I think I was just trying to represent a large over-pair because my bet on the flop was rather large, it was right in respect to the limpers but large compared to the limit I was playing.
