Default PS $3/rebuy - trouble with AJ

Midway through, we're probably about 100 from the bubble. No reads

(Ante: t100)
9 players
Converter

Stack sizes:
MP1: t30582
Button: t19060
Hero: t30360

Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is SB with A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]
2 folds, <font color="#cc0000">MP1 raises to t2000</font>, 3 folds, Button calls t2000 <font color="aaaaaa">(pot was t4400)</font>, Hero calls t1500 <font color="aaaaaa">(pot was t6400)</font>, BB folds.

Flop: T[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] J[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 2[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] (t7900, 3 players)

I bet the flop here,TP and the backdoor,think you are good here alot.

Does anybody rr pre? You are well ahead of button and this is one that would be nice to take down preflop.

Calling pre is fine.
AJo sucks and we are OOP, so why build a bigger pot. Also, I hate min-raises .. against unknowns I always like to call first and see what kind of players they are - the ones min-raising AK,KK+ or the ones min-raising junk like KJo. I then make a note and exploit those plays later.
