Not so easy fold for me. I think he didn't have a monster because he had played slower. I'm sure he had a pocket pair (maybe TT, 99 ... even lower 22?) and he wanted to check your weakness; he knew he got, at last, a 50% to win.

i think it was a nice fold from you. you surely saved some $$ for urself there. aj is a hand which is easily dominated by other hands which your opponent can be holding in an allin, so i always prefer folding them in a cash game

FOLD! No question about it! If a had AK suited I wouldn't make a call. Only AA or KK would lead me to call. I would fold JJ also.... QQ would be a very hard decision. But always remember the kind of player that goes all in. If the player goes all in is too aggressive, more hands that you would have made a call. But even in that case AJ isn't the hand. I would prefer 10 10.

To fold would be the most conscious thing to do, but i dont criticize those who would call just to see his cards. There was 1$ at the table and someone put 9$ all in. This can be either too dumb because he his risking 9 times more or he can have a medium big pair in the hand and he wants to guarantee he wins this hand, put everyone away. If he is just trying to rob the pot, with no pair in the hand, its too risky to be done. Thats the way to see the difference between someone who knows how to play and someone who doesnt and thinks it is easy to win money on poker.

Hello everybody! Me I probably already call by curiosity. In addition it is seen as a pro I doubt he leaves all-in if his hand is super-strong he would not want everybody hunted. But he surely AQ or AK See you soon for new posts!
