      Fold to UTG reraise, limping then reraising is obviously very strong hand looking for trap. Also you don't wanna 3-bet with AJ, it's marginal ace.

      I fold also no question, I don't like getting my whole stack in with ajo as a rule against any hand or position without a read on the limpers, i would play passive with aj, sss or bss.
      would rather be weak tight with aj than strong broke :)

      Note him down is a must.

      Secondly, it depends on the situation. I would go broke here as I need less Equity with the 3rd Player participating in the pot. But on Micros, stick to Basic SSS and see your Stack:Raise ratio (=2.1? thus push)

      I also see clowns on NL100+ limping with Aces ;) its inevitable but very unprofitable for them in the long run :rolleyes:

      I'm shoving this hand preflop, you have only 15 bb left and there are already two limpers. Easy and profitable.
