Don`t know if it was necessary to go all in at once with still 20 BB in the stack. But that is actially what one wants with AK: going against a dominated hand from the opponent. Of cause he hit his 3-outer. But that was just bad luck.

I not sure if I play this like you, because you have not so small number of chips and it is not hand like AA or KK where I most times go all in but also see how many chips I have, because now you go all in and have about 200 big bets and not big need to risk all chips, you can have call from guy who have KK or AA

Did you in good feeling when shove it ? or you always or most the time do that when hold AK ? I think unnecessary shove in that condition, except your opp shove first is more reasonable. Do you just want to win base on luck ? don't enjoy play tactically ?

My feeling with AK is ever a confusion Big Smile I think that it´s good but it cheat me a bit. When I have it I want to increase the pot, because I think that I can beat any oponent...but is not true Sad I play it in slow play, or Open Raise and Call 3bet, check/call, etc., trying to adapting to the spot and opponents, but ever I`m sorry to lose my precious AK, so I make bad moves too!
