      Should I raise here preflop?

      I'm not sure about positions... should I treat the blinds as late positions or early positions? I don't feel comfortable playing AJ OOP on the flop as a short stack. I mean... unless I hit top pair here I will have to give up on the hand

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $30.45
      MP3:
      $18.95
      CO:
      $10.10
      BU:
      $15.25
      SB:
      $24.75
      BB(Hero):
      $5.00
      UTG1:
      $25.85
      UTG2:
      $31.30
      MP1:
      $8.50

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, A.
      5 folds, CO calls $0.25, BU calls $0.25, SB folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.85) K, A, 3 (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.25, BU calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.5, CO folds, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.35.

      Preflop: A definite raise here from the blinds. If you get reraised, then feel free to fold.

      Flop: I would prefer to lead out myself instead of check raising here.

      Hey!

      Blinds is an unique position (Late position preflop but Early postflop+)

      I raise it up to $1.75 (1extra BB for position disadvantage). If someone call I shove postflop since the POt equals to your stack.

      As played, I lead out potsized since you have to protect your hand and grind value out of CO+BTN, they seem fishy as they openlimp from those positions



      Sincerely,
      Gerv
