      probably my biggest leak - how to play AJ. i still cannot figure out the rights spots when to 3bet with it [except fishes]. people are calling me with AQ and extracting value from me on A rainbow board :(

      UTG+1 is the raiser and he is tight he should have good hand here and reraising him on the button with AJo is not a good idea IMO. Calling is fine. The thing is UTG+1 wouldn't put you on AQ+ since button is considered looser.

      On the flop you could raise him so showdown would be cheaper IMO.

      I think i would play the line Bet Flop , Bet Turn for a free showdown? there are two flush draws out there so i think giving a free card is maybe a bit dangerous?

      Noo you can't 3bet AJo here, you're cruuushed by his calling range. In fact, AJ is crushed by most 3bet-calling ranges, so I would never 3bet a MP raiser here with AJ (perhaps against a maniac that I want to shove it against ;) ). Just calling is better, even folding is OK too
