No Limit Hold'em
7 players at the table, I am SB with around 10 BB in my stack
Average stack is around 15-20 BB
One person in middle position calls the BB, everyone else folds
Back to me - I have AQ offsuit, and raise to 2.5 BB. I have been either raising to 2-3 BB or folding pre-flop for most of the game so far.
BB is a new player at the table and seems fairly loose overall
He goes all in with about 15 BB - I follow and go all in. Player in middle position folds.
BB has JQ offsuit. He catches a J on the turn and wins the hand with the pair of Jacks.
Thinking about this hand now, I think I should have probably gone all in immediately instead of raising to 2.5 BB, the BB probably thinking I was trying to steal. Would he have called my all in with JQ offsuit?
How would you have played this hand?
