      Is the call preflop ok here? Villain is quite loose aggressive.
      Is the check raise ok or is a flat call better?
      I think i should have folded to his shove but i thought he could be doing this with a flush draw.

      I'm assuming villain is loose aggressive bad given his stack size, if he's a good loose aggressive player he won't have that wide of a range for opening from early position, so AJo would still be a fold since he'll be very hard to outplay postflop out of position anyway.

      Against a bad villain it's tough to discuss, I certainly don't mind the way you played it all the way expect that you need to raise the flop bigger given how drawy it is. It's just that every decision point seems dicey, so unless you're confident on your reads about villain's ranges you might be better off just taking a pass preflop.

      Hope it helps.
