Player 4 is tight, 5 loose and 6 loose. It is folded to me and with 6 bb I shove AJo. I could have played this any better?

Hi kykkylik!

With only 6BB, while having a read on the opps helps, I'm short enough that I need to be looking for a place to shove (preferably open-shove).

When it folds to me in the hijack, I need to be shoving a very wide range, about 1/3 of hands. With this range including all aces (suited and unsuited) along with plenty of other hands... I'm snap-shoving AJo here as it's even toward the top of my range.

While it's unlucky that the blind woke up with a big pocket pair, the absolutely correct play was made.. to shove the AJo.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
