      According to the chart I have, AJ in the small blind is only a raise if you are first in. Behind this many limpers, completion would be ok, or folding, given that you will be first to act in all betting rounds. What a bunch of calling stations you had here! You have no choice postflop, top pair, fair kicker, and a big pot, but that many behind you, all wanting to play, you had to lose this. Right?

      I hate AJ, even suited.

      Yes, that is what I wasn't to sure about.

      When it says raise, I thought raise if there isn't a raise before hand and as averyone called I thoought I'd raise 4BB plus the limpers. I was a bit nervous because as you said with that many limpers someone will probably have something. But I tried it anyway and was going to check/fold if I didn't hit and would have made a decent pot if everyone folded...

      Then I hit the ace and had a good kicker and a few more outs so I thought, I'm pot committed might as well continue and go all-in.

      In the end, yes I lost to tens over fives from a guy who called my 8BB raise with a 10/5 and then called my all-in with a pair of fives...


      So I guess with alll those limpers in hindsight I should have passed at the beginning but the large pot was tempting :D

      I think you're wrong about the SHC thing aciddrop since it would seem to me that Werdna plays SSS, not BSS :) . And that chart only says raise :) .

      Exactly! In the SSS AJ is a raise in this situation and on this flop you have to go all-in. In BSS it is different.

      Good luck at the tables!

      You can go directly all in to maximize your fold equity , since there are enough dead money there.

      OK, I'm confused. I have a chart, the one titled shc_adv_sss.pdf, which lists the blinds for AJo as Raise(0), which means, only if no one has entered the pot before you. I've been using this chart for months now. Maybe there has been a new one posted, which has changed this? In any case, if that was the case, a call here would be ok, as there are more than two limpers.
