It doesn't matter if it's suited or not, if I have, or am, the short-stack and am dealt A-J, in mid-pos, after a limper and a big-stack-bully shover, I'm calling. Although, I told myself that playing A-J on a s-s is almost a crime in itself and not to blame myself when it gets beaten, I was left w/no choice as the blinds were coming for me (75/150) while I'm sitting on 750, give or take a green-chip or 2. I shoved and the b-s-bully called and he flipped over K-J os. I thought "WOW! I might win this one," made it through the flop, the turn brought a J, the suits were rainbow, but the river brought a K. So, once again A-J delivered its usual beat. I think that A-J is probably the worst hand to try and win with, regardless. Ok, I'm done blowing off some steam. L8R guys. :vomit:

Unfortunately bad beats are part of the poker game, they are painful to experience but accept them, because they do exist.

bummer dude, but anyways i dont see why aj is such a bad ss hand,
I mean when your ss if im not mistaken your range increases because of the pressure,
and you just cant afford to throw away hands like that
