      I must say i think this is realy bad play. First of all i think you should 3 bet with AJo pre against a CO open raise since you are out of position. You CAN bet on the flop and if you do so i think 10-13c are better but i actually prefer C/C, Lead turn ½ pot and fold to a raise. If he calls your turn bet make a blocking bet of 1/3 pot and fold to a big raise that is my line i think.

      Hi,


      I don't mind the flat preflop, you'll keep dominated hands in the pot and if CO is opening a lot he'll likely at least c-bet the boards you hit.

      Which is why i'm check/calling the flop and check/calling the turn to let him bluff or valuebet worse Ax hands. If he checks behind the turn i'm valuebetting the river, he could be pot-controlling some Ax hands or just not believe you, make it cheapish but still decent to entice call while avoiding bluff raises, like 1/2 pot.

      As played when he indeed does raise, his hand is pretty much always bluffs/Tx or something else he decided to slowplay. Since you actually made a very weak bet it's not unreasonable to think he could be bluffing, so calling is okayish, folding is fine too.


      Hope it helps.
