AK OTB, facing a flop raising war.

90 BBs effective. $1/$2 Hero has 100 bbs.
Villain is CO.
Hero is the BTN.

Hero is a young Asian reading off an e-reader at the table. Normally is pretty tight, has been playing a bunch of pots since he got hot after sitting down.

Villain/table is mostly readless. Hero sat down one rotation ago and has played at this place once. Villain sat down soon after I did and we've played one rotation where he raised to $12 and took it down.


Preflop: Hero is dealt AK.
Two limpers,
Villain raises to $12 in the CO.
Hero calls behind.
SB/BB call
1 limper calls.

Turn $50 AKQ
Checked to C/O who bets $30.
Hero raises to $65
Folded around, C/O jams for $168 and all in.

Is hero always calling here?
I figure the hands I beat that the villain has are AQ, KQ, K10/KJ of clubs. I'm losing to are J10, QQ, KK, AA. I'm also discounting KQ/K10/KJ just because the table has a pretty tight opening range from the hands I've seen shown down.

I raised to charge the flush draws and to set up a jam on the turn.

Thinking behind the pre. I'm the button and last to act. With Ace king unsuited, I feel most of my value comes from other people making pairs so I don't really like isoing.

3b pre and this hand plays itself.

As played with the range you assigned it's probably still a call.

Re: AK OTB, facing a flop raising war.

No idea how you can discount KQ to a CO raiser after 1 rotation.

You are committed. Snap call with top 2 with these stacks.

3b pre as suggested

As played not sure what we are beating here.

AA -KK Are somewhat less likely given your hand. Still Villain prob plays a set this way on this board.

QQ is crushing us

JT is not usually raising PF in this position so I think we discount this possibility

KQ is the only hand we beat here and there just aren't that many combos of it.

I don't see where we ever like what villain turns over here other than AQ

Re: AK OTB, facing a flop raising war.

Couldn't have known it was going to go 5-way to the flop. I'd flat pre.

I'm not folding. Not having the Kc in our hands puts a lot of draws in V's range. KJcc and KTcc have fewer outs than he thinks, Hero is a small favorite against those hands.

Never folding here.

Flop top two on a draw heavy board with 100bb stacks? Yeah... gii.

Re: AK OTB, facing a flop raising war.

I'd 3bet small pre to $27 to increase the chances of winning without showdown while at the same time keeping in his dominated hands.

As played readless at 1/2 I'd just call it off.

Re: AK OTB, facing a flop raising war.

These broadway boards smash EVERYBODY'S range. Everybody has a good piece of it, or a small piece with a straight draw (like AT here). The pot gets huge quick, and with small stacks it's really hard to get away from it.

For <100bb's, and getting ~3:1, I'm never folding here. We're only 4:1 against a flopped straight, but throw i in AQ, pair/draw combo's, and flush draws, and this is absolutely a profitable call. If the other guy calls, our equity goes down, I believe, but profitability goes up.

Assuming V has always has a straight and folding is MUBS

Re: AK OTB, facing a flop raising war.

I think 3 bet pre is soo much better than flatting. Its 1-2 and i2 ppl limped. The raise to 12 isn't getting those limpers out ever. Goes 5 way almost everytime. Isolate, hes 90 bb deep should play pretty straightforward on most flops.
