AJs in the BB
No real reads yet. Table is unusually tight-aggressive for Party 1/2 (2-3 players per flop, relatively small pots, most hands don't go to showdown). The PF raiser struck me as the 'book' type who would usually only raise with AT, a pocket pair, or better.

Party Poker 1/2 Hold'em (7 handed) (converter)

Preflop: Hero is BB with A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].
UTG folds, MP1 folds, MP2 folds, <font color="CC3333">CO raises</font>, Button calls, SB folds, Hero calls.

Flop: (6.50 SB) T[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(3 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="CC3333">CO bets</font>, Button folds, Hero calls.

Turn: (4.25 BB) 3[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(2 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="CC3333">CO bets</font>, Hero calls.

River: (6.25 BB) 7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="blue">(2 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="CC3333">CO bets</font>, Hero folds.

Final Pot: 7.25 BB

I figured I had good odds with the overcards and backdoor flush draw. I put the raiser on a pocket pair. Should I have tried to bluff at the river? The third club is a bit of a scare card.

Re: AJs in the BB
The problem with the flop call is that your overcard outs may not be clean. He has to have precisely KK, QQ for your Ace out to be clean, so this leaves you thin. If he does have a hand like Big-Ten-suited, you're cooked.

Had the flop came Txx w/one heart it would be proper to the flop here getting 7:1.

Re: AJs in the BB
Why does he have to have exactly KK or QQ for the A to be good here? If you were the CO in this hand and it is folded around to you are you saying you wouldn't raise JJ-77 or lower? Also KJs, QJs, etc. And then when it is checked to you on this board I would imagine you would bet out.

Given that it was folded to the CO and the CO should correctly be raising a wider range of hands I would have 3 bet this preflop. From there I think the calls were fine.
