Hi Brad!

Welcome to the forum. Here's a link that will help to get you familiar with all that PSO has to offer.

With being on the button with AJo, since I'm going to get to play the hand in position, I'm most likely going to call, see the flop and hope to outplay them after the flop with position.
This will depend on my read for the opp though, as if the opp is a nit, then I'd muck as I'm most likely already way behind and an A might not help.... or if the opp is playing/raising ATC (any 2 cards), I might raise preflop.

Good luck at the tables.
