So do you normally raise in the big blind with AJo when a "pretty strong tightish player" limps first in? I never do and find AJo very hard to play out of position here. If I were to raise here it would not be on the merit of AJo.

He expects to take this down on the flop a lot against this type of opponent.

some of this advice is so bad.

check/call and lead the river, or pot the turn. check/raise all-in folds out too many hands that will either call your turn lead and bet the turn but not call off all the chips. you should be way ahead here, and if you're not you have the ace of diamonds, so this should be a how do I extract the most value? hand. in my humble opinion.

TWP,

5-handed, villain was UTG. SB folded initially, CO limper folded to the pre-flop raise, Button folded on the flop.

Diablo,

what were your thought when playing the hand? Were you comfortable of getting in another 2k on the turn against this player?

[/ QUOTE ] I was in no way intending to be rude. I am just trying to learn how raising with AJo is profitable here. I am not saying it isn't, I just don't think it is for me (it could be but I don't believe it is). I was wondering if it is for Diablo, or if this is a variance play that he is making.
