If I decide to go with the hand I prefer shipping turn expecting to be good some of the time vs QJ/KJ/KQcc.
I'd get in A5/A2 on the flop since there is almost no chance we are beat and I wouldnt want to see a club turn...
Isn't AJ the same as A5/A2 here? Surely he's rarely flatting 22/55 vs our UTG range and does he raise flop with AQ?
I think it depends on whether he thinks you're gonna fold Ax and whether you think he has 22/55 in his range.. seeing him raise flop bet turn then giveup in the past makes it easier to fold.
