      Final Pot: $22.45.

      Preflop: I call these suited AJ to hit a very good flop (i think its mainly -EV though).
      Flop came very good. Should have stick my money in there ?
      Turn - sort of scarecard to me. SB goes insta all-in, thought very long there and called. Was it right ?

      Hi, fold preflop. AJs is rubbish against 2 front raises, you're almost always behind like you already mentioned. Now you've got yourself into trouble with a hard decision on the flop. Still, the flop is pretty good so I would 3bet aggressively. You are likely behind if he calls or reraises you though. NH.

      Yes , this calling with AJ from blinds is bad, worse when there were raises. Usually dont do it.
      Here I looked, it was only a minraise, and after that I got good odds. Also when I call with AJ, I need very good flopp (like two pair or stronger to continue with this hand.

      Fold pf. you will play OOP and your Ace can be dominated by a better one. (which you can't know until SD)
      As played: shove flop.
