      I would raise preflop here, AJo is not a good hand to play in a 4-way pot imo. Or at least I have big problems playing it. Beeing oop sucks, but for me it's still better to be oop but with initiative heads up with AJ (or even in a 3-way pot which can happen here) than to complete it from the small blind.

      As played I would play it the same way as you did.

      I usually raise it as well from the blinds. Playing OOP sucks. But when there are many limpers, I sometimes just complete the SB or check on the BB

      I'd bet again on the turn though. Against reraise I fold. On that river, I check/fold.

      If I play this oop I can go broke real easy so I just complete against 2 limpers and hope to hit a 2pair or better hand =S

      When my oop TPGK meets resistance from 2 players Im just about done with the hand, but I call turn because of the low bet and what looks like good odds.
