its fine to fold on the turn. if you're going to raise make it 100-120 after 2 limpers, although id just limp along with aj. on the flop a bet is good but bet more!! like 180 or something, and id probably be happy to get it in on the flop. once u bet like a girl on the turn and he c/r hes repping prob a set/2p and worse aces just seem really unlikely given his line but still possible, so good fold there.

I would dump AJ on the first hand. Is that too tight?

folding preflop is probably fine.

Come on, folding pf is not fine, but weak-tight. Of course, you can still be 10% ROI player at $6.50 if you fold AJ from CO, but that's not what we are talking here about.

I'd suggest here to check behind the flop, call down if Villain bets at turn+river or valuebet villain if he checks turn or river.

I'd limp along pf w/ position. Raising is bad, but if you did have a raising hand after two limps (JJ+ AK) make it around 100 - you want to either take it down or have 1 or 2 callers. Bet around 3/4 flop, 2/3 turn and fold to raise.

I think limping is find as long as you can make folds like you did on the turn.

Folding A9 from CO is tight, but not nitty (at least not at this level). AJ folding from CO is very nitty. Would you do it in a chash game?

You strongly disagree in winning poker.

I am in the fold AJoff boat. I don't think there is enough value in it at this level of blinds. I don't think you can raise enough at these blinds to push out set miners and most other random junk hands. And when an Ace or Jack flops, well neither you can be really really happy with. At these limits, i'm looking for a hand i'd be happy to get it in on a good flop with and AJ just isn't really that hand. Yes when you move up to the larger buy-in sngs AJ early in the tournament becomes pretty strong in the CO, but people will be less likely to start limping in early.
