    Was just wondering how to play AJo, AQo in middle position with a utg raiser who makes it 2.5bb?

    No reads on the UTG raiser as its only the second or third level

    With no reads i'd muck both hands, As UTG is a strong place to raise from. It may be that he is stealing / raising light, but we dont know that so play the strenght of your hands and in middle position they not playing well in a raised pot.

      Hi Jonto15!

      Stack sizes would mean something to me here. If I'm on a short stack, I'd play the AQ. On larger stacks, I'm folding both...... unless I had a read on the opp that said that they'd raise light from UTG.

        If there's not a lot of players left to call after you and the blinds are still small, why not see a flop on those?
        If you hit the J or Q (or better , it's quite playable post-flop isn't it?
