If I were to write a book on how to play AK it would say this on every page for about 500 pages:

AK is very simple. Flop a pair!

3-bet a loose player for value/Fold equity and call a tight player's raise. Never go all-in pre unless you have a dead on read or if the opponent is short stacked and he is pushing light!.

Re: AK vs a reraise (concept)

Posts like this make me really hate myself for only switching to cash within the last year or so. The only shorthanded cash I know is post UIEGA. How did I waste three years of my poker playing life playing sngs.

Re: AK vs a reraise (concept)

Are there ANY situations today where it's correct to fold AK preflop these days? I imagine there are some, but it's gotta be rare, and i dont think people on this forum do it often, if ever.

Also, what do you think about sometimes just flatting 3 bets w/ AK, like TWP said? Is this viable today? If so, in what situations?

Re: AK vs a reraise (concept)

Holy good lord lol.

I read the first three posts or so, realised this must be a ninja bump, and looked at post dates. But wow. This reminds me of some ninja bumped threads in STTF back when I used to play SNGs. It was unbelievable how bad the advice was.

Re: AK vs a reraise (concept)

in order to make this thread relevant for today's games you'd simply have to substitute AK with AQ (or even AJ vs really loose 3-bettors). i wonder if everyone will auto-get-it-in with AT some day

Re: AK vs a reraise (concept)

I flat fold AK to reraises sometimes these days, but the situation has to be very right, e.g. an 8 PFR guy reraising me out of the SB when I have raised UTG.

I don't really flat it to threebets at all, but I actually don't think it's a bad play to throw in your repertoire. I've been tarped a few times by trying to bluff people off Kxx flops because I assume their hand can't be that good.

I thought this thread was a level and some good players chimed in and continued the level.

After a while I realised it was 2 years old.
