    AJo really doesn't dominate anything that could typically 3bet you, so folding pre is fine. Against typical 10NL players, folding pre is even better. It's player dependant. However, I think this is an obvious fold pre (although again, it's player dependant) when you look at your stack size. You cannot make loose calls when you're sitting on a half-stack. This is the kind of mistake I see all the time from shortstackers who don't understand the theory behind playing a short stack. They don't tighten their perception of what hands they can play big pots with, and they end up losing their stacks when they play a dominated hand and don't have room in their stack to defensibly fold.

    On the flop, you're pretty much always way ahead or way behind. You really shouldn't jam the flop imo, because only better hands will ever call. Although it is pretty hard to fold top pair with an SPR of 2.

      AJ, 3 handed to a 3-bet... I'm folding it preflop. You're either up against an A with a better kicker or a premium pair most likely.

      On the flop, I agree with Panicky, that I don't like the push... because you're only going to get called by better hands.
