25c/90, EP open with AJ, LP call, low board, vil donks 1/5
edit: title should read BB call so position makes sense
Maybe this should be a beginner question as i'm still learning. Any advice for a newbie is much appreciated.
Blinds 50/100, ~35 left
Hero (UTG+2) 1950 (19.5bb)
Villain (BB) 11,811 (118 bb)
stacks in between are 5k, 1.5k, 3.6k, 5k
(6 handed, UTG, UTG+1, MP1 missing)
I open from UTG+2 with AJo for 250
BB calls, board is 7 8 6 r, pot is 550
Villain leads for 100.
This is where I need help. PF, I raised 2.5x with AJo to steal the blinds/thin value, but with 17bb behind I would consider stacking off to a 3bet. I get called by the big stack, and donked into for 1/5 pot on a low board. In my (albeit limited) experience in these micro tourneys, this generally means villain has hit a piece of the flop, usually not top pair.
How would you play this? Should I raise and rep an overpair? Check/calling feels like i'm turning my hand face up and villain is just going to vbet me for 3 streets. Folding for 1/5 pot with two overcards that are usually good feels weak, however if an ace or paint falls i'm probably not getting paid off (although any paint may be a good bluff card).
With 17bb behind, I hate check/calling to the river, losing ~7bb, and a flop shove just looks weird and feels transparent. Fold/shove pre?
