Nothing wrong with your play here. There were already 3 BB in the pot when the action came to you, and with just 10 BB in the stack, there was no other way to play it. Loose call from UTG, but he got away with it. But that is just the way it is with AK. One will lose a fair amount of hands against weaker holdings.

Keep loving your AK, but in these situations it’s pretty much a coin flip when you are running out of chips and other players are also and they will play with pretty much anything. I see this all the time. But your AK will hold up a certain percent of the time but you can’t expect it to win every time. This is a good hand to review and learn from for next time.

An ace and a king is of course a wonderful hand when such a hand comes to me, I usually go all in because it is very similar to a win. Not always of course it happens, but in most cases the tusa king is a winning hand therefore I always play.

I ever saw final table Sunday million at youtube. Someone (Panda?? ) who had lowest stack got AKos first hand at FT, he fold and next few hand he kept folding even he had AQ. I don't remember what card he had when he played. Finally he won first place!!!
I am sure you ever play crap card and won so... I think knowing when hold 'em and when fold'em is most important Smile Smile Smile

What format was this??? i cant tell, coz sometimes its ok to go all in with AKo, from all i can gather this could be 6 seat SNG or cash game but it can also be a tournament, again what format was this, coz, if u are playing tournament and have 10 BB with AK delt yeah clear shove that is if you are mid or late in the tournament, again not knowing what type of format this is, i cant answer did u do good or not.

That was the final stage of a tournament SBEP, and this villain was my "variance´s torturer" I found him in two or three hands were I try to make grow up the pot with a top pair, and he won to me with bad beats. But in that stage and with only ten big blinds (I think that in SnGs maybe the same situation) I couldn´t make anything else!

... Big Smile< ...I have paid a LOT of attention to A K over the years,...and I figure it's a very deceptive hand to have because it looks very pretty and seems very strong,....but I have seen it lose most of the time because it gives you a false feeling of strength... Confused

... Big Smile< Just an observation and my opinion... Thumbs Up

I agree with you the ace and the king, of course, cause euphoria and it seems that you will definitely win the hand ... but in the end everything can happen. On the contrary .... you can lose a lot of hope for your good card .... any two together with Deuce on the table beats your card ... so of course you need to carefully play with such a card

I like a lot of AK but you often lose with this book and you are a little disappointed. You can not win all your hands with this hands and this is a reality. I do not have the ability to know how many hands i lost with this hand but in the BRM tournaments in the past on Full Tilt Poker i think the winning variant with AK was about 90%. In money real tournaments is much harder.

I would have played this hand differently, first in the pre-flop I would not have done all in my raise with X3 or 3.5 maximum I think that with that flop with a good Cbet you would have won the hand easily, this does not justify the terrible play of the villain in this hand in the end it was bad luck.

please excuse my english.
Greetings and better luck next time

Don´t worry about your english, I´m southamerican too and this language is hard for me. Thanks to this Forum (and my loved S3 translator) I improve my knowledge. I advise to you that keep writing here and you can make it better in the future! Blink About the game, you have to know that this was an SnG, 10players, and it was an advanced stage. With ten blinds in MP, and AK I thought that I could (minimum) steal the blinds Sad
