I don't like the size of his raise here, it seems to be too large to call with this hand, therefore is this a fold? What does anyone else think?
Thanks
Chris

Fold yeah, its 4x open, seems to be very strong, unless this guy opens all hands like this and is really bad player but still, easier to fold this.

Hi Chris!

With AJo, I get an abnormally large raise in front of me. While I'd be happy to make a standard raise if it folded to me with AJ, I don't like calling raises with it as too many times, I will run into JJ+, AQ+. With this opp making a larger than normal raise, if they are one of the players that bets more with better hands and less with marginal ones (a tell that turns their cards face-up to an observant opp), then best case I'm in a race and can very, very easily be dominated.

Due to this and the fact that I have a very playable stack, I'm going to fold and look for a better spot to get my chips into.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

Thanks both. I figured I was up against at least a pocket pair of 77 or above with the large raise, so I folded.
