      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (9 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Button ($46)
      SB ($125.40)
      BB ($112.10)
      UTG ($48.75)
      UTG+1 ($26.50)
      MP1 ($100)
      MP2 ($104.50)
      MP3 ($70.50)
      Hero (CO) ($17)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, J
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $1, 3 folds, Hero raises to $5, 3 folds, UTG+1 raises to $9, Hero raises to $17 (All-In), UTG+1 calls $8

      Flop: ($35.50) Q, K, 4 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Turn: ($35.50) 3 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($35.50) 2 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $35.50 | Rake: $1.75

      Results in white below:
      UTG+1 had A, Q (one pair, Queens).
      Hero mucked A, J (high card, Ace).
      Outcome: UTG+1 won $33.75


      The shortstack have some really funny stats 60+ VPIP and 50+ WTSD
      I had a little sample but for short stack this stats can never happen if he play good poker. (Some hands later he limped after 2 guys and I was on the SB and i RR w/ 77. 2 folds and he shoves. I insta call him and hi have 96o)

      I need something like 36% equity (with the rake)
      So his range has to be something like that ATs+, AQo+, 88+, KQs
      My question here is can I fold here...

      fold preflop, AJ is not a good hand to re-raise even you have such stats, but i am wondering according how many hands you have such stats? Can happen that UTG had some luck and was holding good hands several times and was also playing them...so with stats wich are less then 100 hands should be carefull...

      @drach: OP doesnt reraise, he raises the limp
      furthermore this guy is DEFINETELY no ps.com shorty when limping UTG

      AJ is not a great hand, but such guys are so unpredictable, i call here...dont forget to make a note!

      btw, dont post results, noone cares :)

      Ingol I totally disagree with you. Not for the hand :D
      The result is very important in this kind of hands. If I played badly and he play good we are going to learn from his play. When we look on hand it is important to see the whole picture imo :)
      and yes this guy is so bad that he deserves a note :evil: :evil: :evil:

      i meant after his re-raise i would fold, but definitely not call, sorry for misunderstanding in my post, but i was sooooo many times sucked with AJ in such case as have either pushed or call, so i am now more carefull with AJ, but with AQ or AK i would probably push...

      @kukki: when playing the hand you didnt know the result, so if we want to judge the hand we need to have the same knowledge as you had in the hand

      btw: NOW he had, AQ, but maybe his range is 100%? ;)
      we only know (after the hand) that AQ is part of his range, we dont know if its the bottom end of the range!
