      Preflop. usually I don´t like playing AJo from SB with so many callers - it leads to trouble :P
      You hit flop very good. Set will beat you (he may have JJ or 22), but he may have also AK, A2 or weaker. I´m going broke here too.

      Preflop: Being OOP with AJo I would likely also just fold the hand, we could bring ourself into big trouble if we hit some kind of TPTK hand.

      As played
      Flop: What's his WTS, W$SD? I don't really see him bluffing here, so he will very often have a made hand here but the question is which one. I think he is capable of cold-calling with JJ here but not that often with AA, more likely would 3bet AA preflop. So we are here against JJ, Ax, A2, 22, AJ. Against this range we likely dominate him. We could also ask ourself if he is capable of raising here with some kind of weaker hand? I would he definitely is, for example AQ, AK without reads I don't mind going broke here. We have pretty good equity against him with some kind of reads that he is pretty nitty with showdown and only goes to the showdown with nuts then I might consider folding, nuts in this example would be for him, JJ, 22. So it's fine to go broke here. :P

      Best regards,
