given villain is a nit is it ok to fold AJo here?hes raising here most of the time with 10+,AQ,AK and maybe AJ.given that AJo is and underdog i believe it is ok to fold AJo preflop.what do you think?
Yea... you need consistent logic throughout the hand.
Villains sample size is pretty small, but if we are assuming hes only playing A10+ and raising with pocket pairs 99+, then your pre-flop call is questionable.
Some people raise A10 from MP... maybe this guy doesn't though. You do have A10 crushed, you split with AJ, you are crushed by AQ AK, and you are slightly behind 99+.
And you feel like calling. Hmm ok. So then what's your plan on the flop? Only call a bet if you hit a jack? This probably isn't profitable, even if he has a high cbet %.
Float him in position? Again, it depends on his CBet% and if you think you can outplay him. Also, you aren't going to be flopping too much to go off of. Flop an ace and you could be dominated, flop a jack and he may not put too much money in, or still have a higher pair. If this guy is playing straightforward, then he'll never pay you off if you do have a better hand.
So it really depends on your skill and the opponents tendencies here.
So, lol, I agree fully with swingro^^^- 3 bet or fold here pre without knowing too much about villain. Everyone else has given the same sentiment, I hope at least I could supply some continuity behind the logic here.
A fold flop really means a fold pre
nh though, keep playing and posting
