      If I have no table read, and no stats I tend to stick to basic SSS. Here I would rely on the basic ratio chart. AJo is a fairly weak hand out of the available starting selection, so is KQ 99 88 and 77. If the ratio chart says fold I would guess a shove is -EV. I would personally fold it, I did so on 2 occassions today (virtually same situations), and once I was rewarded with KK follow up. Now it looks like I am on tilt, or can be easily pushed around... I get action... I cash in... I have forgotten all about folding raggy AJo... :D

      Stick to basic then but I recommend you playing with stats on NL50+

      Fold with 2.7 ratio ;)

      Well, another limp/raiser, huh? You may call for information (note him out) and fold for equity I think :) .
