      Nice hand...I think the standard raise there has plenty of fold equity...especially with MP1 and MP2 being dead money.

      Nice play.

      You would've liked the standard raise there if an A or a J hit the flop. Additionally, if your opponent checked to you, and they aren't the type to slowplay, you just won a large pot.

      He probably called you with a pocket pair and assumed you missed the flop. If you did the exact same move when you had AA/QQ/JJ/TT, his play would lose him a lot of money. By raising that amount when you have AJ, and raising that amount when you have AA/KK, you conveniently set it up for when you do have the goods.

      You could also consider pushing pre-flop with AJ for fold equity. There is enough dead money, if everybody fold, you can leave with over 2,5$. Then it is very hard to call low pocket pair, because you mostly have over pair and he is way behind.
