Question

In this hand of your six-max game online it’s folded to you on the button and you raise to $7. The SB folds and the tight-aggressive big blind calls. The flop comes A Q J. Your opponent leads for $10; you raise to $40, and he shoves.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Fold

You have two pair, yes, but in reality your hand isn't as strong as it looks. You are either crushed by a bigger two pair or a straight, or you are flipping with some pair/straight/flush combo draw. Better to just fold now with only $47 invested.
