    I have been at the table for 5 hands

    This is a spot I find myself unsure about. 25-35BB deep, late in tourny, i get a hand like A 10/ AJ in the blinds, and an open fron MP/LP.

    If I've only been at the table for 5 hands I'll opt to rr harder than normal and establish a don't-steal-my-blinds-bitch rep if that is even possible. AJ is shit if we get 4bet shoved but should be ok vs his open raising range.

    pretty sure if I know nothing about the villains opening range or his tendencies, I'd rather flat 87s than AJo here

    i think where I get stuck is that 3b/f seems exploitable, jamming seems better than 3b/c and open folding is too weak

    Is there any merit to calling, and getting it in on TP or a draw?

    3b/f vs randoms, 3b/spite c vs regs...

    While I'm pretty guilty of wanting standard answers for every spot, this is a pretty good example a spot that is going to be dependent on a ton of things, some examples:

    - reg or random? barrelly or passive postflop?
    - stats?
    - do you have a table image/3b history?
    - do you have 25bb? or 35bb?
    - MP or LP?
    - what are the stacks in front that he has opened into?

    All of these things are going to influence what how I decide to play AJo in this spot, in the sense that you're really looking to decide which play will win you the most chips in the long run.

    Risk, would you elaborate if this hand was broken down ask you described?

    I'd like to know more about how to play this hand also.
