The Button is playing a 26/21/2 style over 500+ hands. He plays very positional poker and from what ive seen a semi decent reg.
The SB is a tightie 12/10/2 style over 130 hands.

Btn's had not been raising me too lightly and i would probably have folded AJ if it wasnt for the SB call. I generally dont want to be playing AJo out of position against a reg.
The SB's call changed the dynamic of this hand in my opinion. SB's range here i put most likely a pocket pair. A 12/10 style doesnt have a big pair here or AK, so should fold to a nice size raise. This also puts the btn in a squeeze position.
I also havent 4 bet this session so I think this is a spot to rep a big hand. The AJ is now irrelevant. I could do this with any two cards that I have raised here. The fact that I am in this position against 2 regs gives me a chance to be squeezy. Lucky for me and this blog it worked.
This month has been a record month as I will post tomorrow and this I feel is due to looking for situations like this. Stepping a little outside the ABC poker looking for opportunities to maximise the winrate.
or maybe ive just been lucky.
