      I think that this was discussed many many times.... UTG limiping his Aces... so played correctly?

      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.
