PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, \$0.05 BB (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

SB (\$3.56)
BB (\$14.86)
UTG (\$2.26)
MP (\$7.05)
Hero (CO) (\$5)
Button (\$2.34)

Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A
UTG calls \$0.05, MP raises to \$0.25, Hero raises to \$0.55, Button raises to \$2.34 (All-In), 5 folds

Total pot: \$1.47 | Rake: \$0

Results:
Button didn't show
Outcome: Button won \$1.47

Button seemed too strong. Even though he is short stack I don't want to invest more money on a cointoss or worse.

Raise to 0,75\$ preflop.

Other than that it's ok for me to fold AK against an all-in, even by the shortstack.

Edit:

You have to call 2,34-0,55=1,80\$ in order to win a pot of 2,34+2,34+0,25+0,05+0,05=5\$

So you need to win in 1,8/5= 36% of the cases to be +EV.

In equilator you can find that your equity against a villain's tight range of JJ+, AK is about 40% and that's totally sufficient. If he could go all-in with TT or even Aq it's only getting better.

AND if you made it 0,75 reraise it increases your odds even more.

So if my reasoning and calculations are good I was wrong before and it's a clear call.

Since player is middle-stack then it is easy call.
He would shove a wide range of hands.
