I ve had another one of them days, it doesnt matter what you do you just cant win at the key-moments. I ve seen it all today: full house AAA/KK = KKKK - I had AA and he had AK I go slow, he pushes so i go all in. Theo flop: AKK so i think this is in. The turn another K i totally lost it.
pair 6 on table, and a pair 6 in his hand I hit my flush he hits royal flush I got 999/QQ he got QQQ/99 or i have hit my gutshot and on the river( not once but 100times) he hits a higher straight
It just wasnt funny today and its my birthday so i m gonna party and play tomorrow another game
hiya.my complete sympathy my friend. take a look at my bad beat story then you'll know how much i empathise. I'm struggling to think of what to do next but i think it's back on the horse and hope it don't kick quite so hard today. 2 sides of opinion always - the best you can do is learn not yearn. Next time all things being equal the luck will be with you. KEEP GRINDING................ oops sorry nearly forgot the poll. CALL

I'd voted call
However, there is def some folding situations. 100% fold if playing DoN on the bubble
And if on the bubble in a reg SNG or MTT, it would depend on a few things, on an MTT bubble if it was against a stack who could knock me out I'd prob fold just cause you can play those things for hours and exiting on the bubble is such a downer
In a small SNG 6/9/10 seater, I'd almost always call and less I had good reason to believe I was beat or if another small stack was about to be blinded out and it seemed more profitable to finish ITM rather than trying to win.
AK can be a strong and a bad card i wouldnt call vs a SSS or in SNG if youre chipleader in SNG wait and play tight hit when you can but you have to Know it if you got for example 5000 chips 3 other players 1500 1000 and 2000 i would show that you got the second best hand

So the cards come over and he has KK Do you think i can hit an Ace????? NO Never in a month of Sundays. Even if the flop was 10 cards i dont think i'd get my Ace.............
yeah but once you got KK yourself... there it is...
well for real, the call wasn't wrong, in this situation the opponent often holds an ace with a weak kicker, any pair or even cards like KQ. but the guys above are right, you should have raised more than 2bb

AK are only two cards, with a premium hand the equity of this is small but with a random of hands is very good; the correct in this case was raise more of 2BB (minimun 4BB, with 2BB you give pot odds to the villain). Call all-in depends on the situation and the player.
i hate AK but i won and lost mutch money with it its a coinflip but AK is the second best hand its not a made hand but a strong speculative hand so go with it Sometimes you need luck too when there is coming A A K on Flop you will f**k your Computer and crash it on the wall ;D so gogo Call and lose maybe 10 DOllars or win 20
