      fold preflop. if you were on late position you can raise it.

      as played you flop a monster draw and the pot is huge, this is always a push

      Only raise AJ from late position.

      As played, when you are pre-flop aggressor and hit a draw you play it as a made hand as they say in the basic articles.

      Hello Volrath89,

      Only raise AJ from late position.

      As played, when you are pre-flop aggressor and hit a Monster {13+outs} draw you play it as a made hand as they say in the basic articles.
      Even when you are 8handed, folding AJs is recommended

      Best regards,
      Gerv
