re: Poker & Help on a preflop hand call/fold
At a table with 7 people, you're basically playing 6-max+1. AJ is ok to raise with UTG in this situation.
Now, someone three betting an UTG raise from the button is trouble, especially since he he's probably not adapting to the smaller table (IE, he's still playing a full ring game). Without a read on the guy I don't want to mess with him when I'm out of position.
It'd be nice if you had specific stats on the guy. But if he seems solid, I'd fold.
