      Hi,

      You should have pushed AI before the flop instead of min-raising.

      As played: c/f flop until a J appears on the turn or river. We don't bluf against 2 opps. Against 1 opp a push would be correct.

      Hey taifoon,

      push all-in preflop, otherwise you just find yourself in difficult spots postflop as you're commited and you will quite likely see overcards on the flop when you hold JJ and besides you give too good odds to villains to call.

      As played, nice hand if there are 2 aces on the board it's unlikely one of the villains has it too, so you can play your pocket pair as made hand.
