In this situation,the PSO chart suggests that you should fold against raise with AJo but,zoom player seemed more loose than regular tables so I called.
On the flop the opponent raised and I called, though I didn`t hit.This is because he might bet as CB and I had over cards.
On the turn the opponent continued to raise, so I folded.
What is the correct line in this situation?

I disagree. Zoom-players are often more tight.


About the hand, AJo is a call for me as well and I would play it pretty much the same way.

There's nothing wrong seeing the flop in position with AJo. Blindly following the chart is not always a great idea. On the flop you had two viable choices, didn't go for either of them. Raising will fold all the Ax hands that missed the flop and the villain could very well have. By folding you get away from the hand losing the minimum.

Calling is not a very good idea. Few players fire only one barrel these days, so unless your hand improves on the turn you have no way to win the pot.

Personally I just fold here on the flop and move on.

I totally agree with this comment. From what I've seen, zoom player are much tighter than std games.

Depending on if I had any info on the opp, I could call the flop bet and fold the turn or I could fold on the flop too.
