      It's fine to go broke preflop with AK. His stats aren't actually that loose aggressive. Although he likes to play alot of pots he doesn't raise that widely and in general people 3bet alot less than they raise, but it's still almost never a mistake to go broke with AK on NL2.

      Hello nuxia,

      According his stats you can easily go broke here with AK, also it's NL2 I wouldn't even be worried against such opponents who have such stats, they tend to shoev with even worse.

      Best regards.
