      Hi,


      Hard to say against a guy on whom we only have 9 hands (his 33/44 stats are weird by the way), but he seems pretty active so AJs is likely ahead of his range when he minraises.

      When he min4bet it's "scary" but given his stack size you're better off just taking your chances and shoving preflop. There aren't any flops you will really like except maybe something like JJx and you don't want to be forced to fold on semi bad textures for not even a potsize bet.

      Ship it preflop and hope for the best.


      Hope it helps.
