      PokerStars - 25/50 Ante 6 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: 22.66 BB (VPIP: 31.42, PFR: 17.35, 3Bet Preflop: 2.00, Hands: 240)
      Hero (BB): 34.64 BB
      UTG: 38.86 BB (VPIP: 35.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 20)
      CO: 20.46 BB (VPIP: 56.25, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 51)
      BTN: 63.38 BB (VPIP: 20.71, PFR: 6.47, 3Bet Preflop: 2.08, Hands: 143)

      5 players post ante of 0.12 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 2.1 BB) Hero has A:spade: J:club:

      fold, CO calls 1 BB, fold, fold, Hero ???

      I have a strong hand against his range but i have a strange decision raise or just check? In my opinion i have to raise but if i raise to 4bb and he calls i have a difficult decision on the flop if i don't hit anything.

      Cumps ;)

      I would consider with the big antes in play, with the position disadvantage and we are playing for 20bb effective against a fish to shove right away. This way you don’t get in trouble post-flop and checking seems weak with a strong hand like AJo.
