AK

First understand your odds(use a calculator if needed), if HU against PP(wich is normally the case when someone goes allin pre-flop) then its a flip, with you being the slight underdog.(50-50)

Lots of ppl lose with AK cause they play it wrong (in short) Ace king is a powerful hand if played right during pre-flop action. If you play AK properly you won’t even seen the flop, you should raise, re-raise the proper amount (accrding to blinds/pot/player/position etc).

You should always pay attention to your opponents chip stacks to know how much to raise. If your opponent raised before you bet you should re-raise just enough to where they will fold, not where they will call. You don’t want to raise too the point you cant fold. There is no shame in folding AK.

REMEMBER

1. Your goal is to get them to fold (as always)
2. Don’t call all-ins with AK (push by all means,depending, not advised)
3. Raise enough to get them to fold
4. Dont over raise
5. Pay attention to opponents stacks
6. Folding AK is ok

AK allows you to bet aggressively and take down large preflop pots.

This is a guide, a very short guide as we all know poker is not clean cut so choices will be made according to the tables and games themselvs.

All feel free to add or correct if you feel its wrong.

You need to have a plan what to do, if you miss the flop.

The deeper you and your opponent are the more difficult this hand becomes to play.

Yeah, I agree with Shokaku, and with AK you dont always face a PP, there are people that call with Ax, QKs, so you want to see a flop if you know whats their range is and that you dominate them. You can also 2 or 3 barrel in high FLOPS if you pressume hes on 33-99...
So if you get to see a flop in wich you are favourite, your goal is not to make them fold, its to make them pay with a worse hand.
And I agree with not going all in with AK, although it really depends on circumstances, cash, STT or MTT...

Cheers doomdy.
shokaku yes without a doubt, its worth noteing that the aggressive style you adapt should be ok for a bluff on the flop, but then the thread becomes a little complicated.
guille22xt yer your right but I was keeping it simple and brief.
But its good if ppl post outher situations and solutions.

2. Don’t call all-ins with AK (push by all means,depending, not advised)

I think there's a very fine line between pushing and calling a push in this situation, obviously it's much dependant on th player(s) you're against with AK being a favorite vs A10,J,Q.

Nice thread B1ggy

in theory it's a very nice tread and very usefull to help but most off the times is the situation in the real game different and never predictable .
Anyway , good thread and much better than 85 % off the other threads .
