      Im not sure what to do, but his stack size should be irrelevant in this kind of board since there is virtually no case that the hand should escalate to involving more than a few more BB's.

      That's what I thaught as well postflop, but what about preflop? Should I call min3bet with AJ or fold it? Is his stack size relevant for that decision? Whould it be something different if he has like 40BB or like 75BB?

      I dont usually call re-raises with AJ.

      He min re-raised you, do you think that is an attempt to scare you out? I dont. Normally RR are only the top few cards and pp, which you are dominated in almost every case of. Though I have a tough time reading players at NL2 just cause they are so random and dumb usually.

      Hi,


      I agree, you'll likely get yourself into more trouble than it's worth by calling 3bets with hands such as AJo, even if it's really cheap. Unless you've seen him do that kind of stuff before with complete garbage and therefore feel comfortable going broke with any top pair postflop, just pitching the hand is safer.


      Hope it helps.
