View Full Version : AJ UTG - Scary Top Pair Situation

07-19-2005, 06:57 PM
The board gave me top pair but a lot of people saw the flop, I'm out of position, my kicker is merely okay and of course there's the three flush - a lot to worry about relatively early in a tournament. How's my line?

A lot of people here muck AJo UTG at a nearly full table because it's so difficult to play out of position.
