      Raise preflop. Postflop is fine.

      I only called pre-flop because if villain calls (which they do alot with bad holdings) I'm OOP.
      If i miss post-flop and conti and I fail I loss.
      Can we keep the pot small when we miss flop by not raising pre-flop when OOP?

      It's always better to raise in that spot, BECAUSE we're OOP.

      We have to make villain pay for position, and then whenever we miss the flop we can still take it down with a c-bet, whereas if we just limp, we can't.

      Don't be afraid of your c-bets failing. They are profitable in the long run if done properly.

      Open completing the small blind is a pretty weake move and will invite a raise from the big blind. When we call that raise, we're in a horrible situation, where we're OOP and we're NOT PFA.

      I'm c/r that flop. Or c/c and then leading out on turn. Whenever villain shows aggression, I'm folding though. PFR and AF make it look like his ahead here.

      hi
      raise preflop aj when limped to you from any position
      as played check call turn and check / call or lead river if he bets or doesnt bet again
      if he is bluffing you have to let him bluff or value town his self with a worse A at least on the turn
