How do you play AKo/AKs in slow structure ?

25 cents 90 players (15 minutes blinds)

How do you play AKo/AKs against initial raiser 3x BB preflop and 2 other callers do you just shove , do you ever flat ? can you fold really early blinds level 1 or 2 ?

That's a very interesting question! In my opinion, fold is impossible and shove in eb (when you have 50x or something like this) is an error.
I prefer squeeze 7x.

Re: How do you play AKo/AKs in slow structure ?

This is an interesting situation.

I don’t think we should be shoving here, ever. At this stage of the tournament I would guess we have 50+BBs and at best we’re flipping if we’re getting called - which is something that I would try to avoid when there is plenty of time left for us to get in better spots. In fact, this is a hand when I think we should act with caution, flat and be prepared to fold if we don’t hit the board. I just believe there’s no point in risking our entire stack when we have all the time in the world to wait for for a better spot to get our money in the middle.

Flat oop, look to build the pot if we flop a pair or better.

Re: How do you play AKo/AKs in slow structure ?

Opener's range is 88+; AQs/o+; KQs. It's a coin flip with a tie resulting ~15% of the time.
Run 20 random flops on Flopzilla & it's about 50/50 where either you or opener has 10+% more equity & about 6 flops where it's still a coin flip. You do have position.....and fold equity if you 3! large enough.

Thanks, funny story actually. First time I ever played Poker with my friend and I tabled two pair on a paired board and declared Three pair. Kinda stuck.

You should never shove there if you got 25+ BBs. If you got 50+ BBs easy squeeze to like 15 BBs. You can argue calling in position but i dont like it cause AK can be tricky to play 4+ villians even if you flop top pair which you dont do that often.
