      I played this pretty bad I think but I am really not sure what should be my line here

      UTG is too aggressive short - 19/19 on ~50 hands
      MP is fish
      COstandart 18/16 tag

      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      CO ($49.25)
      Hero (Button) ($49)
      SB ($40.25)
      BB ($13.25)
      UTG ($11.50)
      MP ($17.95)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with A, J
      UTG bets $1.50, MP calls $1.50, CO calls $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, 2 folds

      Flop: ($6.75) 10, 10, A (4 players)
      UTG bets $10 (All-In), 2 folds, Hero calls $10

      Call/3bet pre? Folding seems kind of weak so I wasn't certain what to do :f_biggrin:

      Once I i hit my ace folding is not an option right?

      call is fine there
      you can´t fold your top pair, since he can easily shove any draw or somehow QQ/JJ

      I'd call preflop IP too. Hard spot on the flop, it mainly depends on this pf raising range from UTG. if A9,AT are there u need to call.

      as I wrote, he has quite a high pfr for shortstack - 19% in ~50 hands but then again the hand count is not that high to make strong assumptions.

      Looking back into this hand I guess it might be better to 3bet here and call shorties shove. Especially since I hit my ace and then again I have ugly situation - dont really want to call but then again whats the point of calling AJ pre, hitting ace and folding to shorties shove. Then I dont have that many tough decisions later on :P But on the other hand, his 4bet range is really crusing my AJ since he will probably fold any weaker ace to my 3bet.. I don't know, dont really see any good line here :rolleyes:

      And of course in this spot preflop I would much rather have small pp, sc or small suited ace
