    Was the original raise large enough? Should I have re-raised pre flop?

    You got your money in when you had the best of it and you got out when you were drawing to 7 outs. I would have dumped AJ preflop to a raise and all-in re-raise. So you got a player to call when he/she was dominated. That's what you want. He/she just got lucky.

    I don't think you are getting the AJ player out with a re-raise pre-flop*, so I think you played it just fine. Anyway, you want him/her in. And I'm sure you'll still have opportunities later in the sat to get his/her money.

    Peace, Starrs LSOGC

    *Stack sizes would help here. If you and AJ both had much larger stacks than the field and you have him covered, a re-raise preflop might have been called for. If you and he had over 3K and everyone else had less than 2k, then I don't see how he calls an all in from you. But otherwise, you played it fine.

        I wouldve reraised all in with my AK, but it seems like the moron who called initally with AJs anyhow wasnt going anywhere...still, I love going all in with AK vs AJ every time, despite what may fall...
