      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:
      $1.85
      MP1:
      $21.10
      MP2:
      $1.85
      MP3:
      $1.80
      CO:
      $10.47
      BU:
      $1.60
      SB(Hero):
      $2.40
      BB:
      $11.04
      UTG1:
      $2.00

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, J.
      6 folds, BU raises to $0.3, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.70) 6, 8, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.50, BU raises to $1.3(All-In), Hero calls $0.80.

      Turn: ($3.30) T (2 players)

      River: ($3.30) 8 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.30.

      I had the impression BU loved to steal. In the hand before this one he raised and I went all in with JJ and he immediately folded. I knew I was ahead pre flop and decided to bet on the flush draw to scare him off.

      Call isn't right, push or fold.

      i would reraise all in here preflop, particularly after u did it last hand and he folded. I think he would be tempted to call you giving you a good shot at taking a chunk of his stack =)

      May I ask Luitzen, why you preflop called with AJs ??


      I personally think reraising to $1 or shoving pre gives you more EV

      As played, c/R to let him bluff on the flop, this way you let him fold the weaker hands cheap(=I love to steal ATC against people holdings)
