This is really a hard decision to make man. The raise was definitely the right thing to do. And the all in move is very high, so you can easily fold the hand, if you feel you are being beaten. But folding AK is always difficult for me.

Sometimes, the best decision is to fold...even sometimes, (depending on the game and your relative position in the game; I.e. On the bubble of a qualifier tourney) with AA. Some people find it really hard to do, and I think being able to shows great composure and understanding of the game you are in.

Assuming that the preflop shover was probably on tilt and just pushed with any two cards to double up quickly, folding AK was a smart decision in this unique case. You won't be a huge favorite unless he had AQ-, KQ-, I guess?

Easy call. He almost never shoves AA and KK. Yes he have pair lot of times but that is worst case scenario. He have lot of AQ, suited connectors or just random tilt shoves in his range so its snap call.

I think you did right ting... fold AK because he got AA or KK for sure.... maybe AK... if you are holding AQ would you shove when someone raise you preflop... ofcourse not... so I think he got you beated

At the moment I am the Bankroll mob leaderboardfreeroll on Pookersstrs and it is loose all over the place again. With a tight image I push all in with AK suited from early position and guess what, I get called from K3 suited. But this time I won the hand.

Against nit you have to adjust if he only go all in and calls with AA and KK , i would only call with those both hands , for example if you calls and all in with AK+, i would adjust and call and all in with 10 + as i will get more equity with the flips as JJ vs Ak is kind of close , also it all depends if you see the other players play, if they one is 4 betting then most likely he has KK+ so be wary , anyway good luck mate have fun at the tables!

lol i love this kind of poker, u think they got the goods, yet they all go all in with 7/2 offsuits, people overestimate the skill levels off all in players. lower standard of poker for sure . isnt the wsop!
------------ i woulda called, or whatever, cause they all think they got A/A when they really got 2/7 offsuits.

Main pot : $0.28
vir001 loses ($0.04)

pelinimed loses ($0.12)
yourPusher888 bets $6.69, collects $6.85, net $0.16
millwod loses $0.00
madbastel loses $0.00
depends on the stack size, yourPusher888 was just On Fire, if you play this limit with 12$ balance ofcourse it is hardest decision for you, when you have 200$ it is easy call, cause of yourPusher888 stack size, if it was 2$ fold can be good

Why would AA or KK would shoved after a 3 BB raise normaly he will probably reraise and see. Somethinkg happend to me the other day i was playing .02/.05 i am SB with A J everyone before fold so i raise the BB reraise so i thought having him fold and shoved he called with K K bbut poker god was on my side and the A came on the flop and i won the pot. True that i had a small stack but if you had a big stack and was afraid then IMO your fold was OK and with a little stack and a BR than its a call.

Ps. You can not fold AK in this spot ever specially at NL4, unless you know he plays super-tight and playes AA or KK this way. It's an easy call
