Hi Adam,

No I wouldn't change anything. I don't think we even always has a set on the end he's probably got AK, AQ, A9, A6 and some guys will have flush draws as well.

I don't think you can get away here.

Well played

Quad Bracelet Winner

hey um i kinda got some issues with this hand
1st i dont quite see y u would call offsuite AJ here i think thats a fold preflo
2nd calling the original raiser bet on the flop, there are many turn cards which can be bad for your hand, especially with a 3rd person in the hand, i think a raise would be in order on the flop.
our action after that depends on how the villain plays the hand as sometimes it would be ok to fold top pair top kicker if he offers to much resistance and we lose all our equity if we bust out early.
so lets assume he just calls im going broke on that turn card.

If the villain that opened the pot is a known winner or a nit, I'd fold pre, but as played I'm always going broke on that turn card. Villain can have a lot of 2 pair hands or a combo draw with something like QTss or KTss.
