      The article says this:
      You should only continue to play strong made hands, two pair or better, when an opponent bets in front of you on the turn.

      I haven't two pair but I think it is better not to lay down because there is big chances that he has Ax or he is bluffing because of scare card.
      Could I raise allin against big stack?
      Lets say I have AJ. Could I play it there agaisnt midstack?

      Hello. I'm definitely getting my money in against a shortstack. I would have cbet the flop and get it in there against him anyway. Against a big stack, as played, you can definitely raise the turn, but I'm likely folding to a 3bet from him without any reads.

      Agree with above, he doesn't have much money left so you might as well call his bet.

      He could have AQ, not AJ hopefully, Ax...

      Oh, I noticed that I asked a dumb question :D I didn't think about J on the flop. Then let's say I have AT against the same opponent - with this hand probably fold?

      I would have cbet the flop

      This was unknown and I don't like bluffing against unknowns on this limit because often they are loose.

      re-raise pot against middlestack it is easy all-in on the turn
      you can check back on that board, since a lot of times players doesn´t fold there, if they hold any pair, so going on showdown is fine
