Psychologists often refer to the 7 stages of grief that accompany any significant loss in an individual’s life. We certainly think AK qualifies as a traumatic event in the lives of poker players, and know the stages all too well:

1) Denial: “There’s no way I could’ve missed the flop. They were suited. I can call here, I probably still have the best hand. Shoot, I should raise to narrow the field”

2) Anger: “I raised preflop. The board is 239. What the f**k are they calling on? Oh, now they’re re-raising me? Well, we’ll f**king see about that. Fine, your 23o hit? Congrat-u-f**king-lations. Cap!”

3) Guilt: “Man, I missed the turn and they’re still betting into me. I am such a terrible player. I should really let go of this hand. Let go if it, dumbass. Let go. See, this is why you never make money at poker because you can’t lay a hand down you stupid f**k JUST FOLD.”

4) Depression: “Call”

5) Forgiveness: “It’s ok, you have to look that guy up every once in a while with A high. He might’ve been on AQ or AJ, and you would’ve had the best hand then. It’s good for your table image anyhow. People won’t mess with you now.

6) Acceptance: “Ok, next time I’ll just limp and see a flop.”

7) Recovery: “Hey, AKs, alright - RAISE!”

Not sure if this has been posted before but gave me a chuckle Big Smile

Gotta hate AKs. By far the hand i lost most money with, well AKs and 77. I'm so bad, but whenever I get AA, I think I'm good again, so I just keep playing.

Esp. 2) Anger is really me, I know I'm beat but I still call, only out of anger for calling my big raise with 23 or something like that.

But then again, you'll have it all if you do hit the flop, like a flush or something, you'll always have the best of it and that's why we do it.

AK is as good as any other hand when you play poker. U just have to know how to play them. All 7 points are funny but one of them is true. AK is raise hand, but you have to know when to fold a hand. It goes for every hand even AA.

Oh Yes the dreaded AK unsuited or suited its the one hand that can excite you and disapoint you all in the same hand.. Disagree

I try and not get to excited and try and remember IT IS A DRAWING HAND only marganaly better than KQ .....

So play with cortion or go broke

AK to the rescue OR AK to the dole que..LoL Evil

Once I had Royal flush with suited Ace and King Club I had 11 Big blinds and I went all in preflop. One member called and when he showed i saw what he had. he had AKo. i was calm because i knew we will split, but the board was 10 Club J Club 5 Heart Q Club 2 Heart . It was my first royal fluh and I was very happy. Big Smile

It's probably my worst hand to play!

You can lose very much because you think you might have the best hand with A high

this post remember me first poll I posted when joined BRM:
"downgrade AK to trash hand"..
obviously it was ironic but wanted to be a reminder about the difficulty of playing AK

i have read anywhere AK is the starting hand which people (me too) lose more money. so if you miss the flop better to fold against any type of agresion in the hand
