      Hi,
      Do you think 3betting with AJ in 6-max game vs a loose opponent is a good play?

      Thanks!

      21 hands is definately not enough for us to classify him as a loose open raiser, especially not from UTG (!!). Therefor I really don't like the 3bet preflop at all because our hand is very marginal.
      I would however cold call because our AJs still has pretty good playability and that might also drag some of the blinds into the pot which instead bad for our suited hand.
