      I like it :D

      You have to protect your hand against straight and flushdraws. If he has AK, KK or AA its bad luck. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!

      seems like a rag if not medium ace. he might have hit 2 pair on turn, i doubt its a flush draw, unless he's an absolute fish. and yeah, nice hand.

      Interesting hand and a good example of how difficult it is to play trap hands like AJ OOP to a re-raise.

      You'll just about never see a FD here and occaisionally a gut-shot. Here you need to protect your stack not your hand. If villain has a tight range say QQ+,AK then checking the hand all the way down would be a great result . Against this range you have very little equity. Donking the flop is also likely to fold out the one hand that you do beat (QQ).

      Villain needs a wide range PF for you to get involved here. If he has then the line you took is fine.
