      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , K:diamond:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0,20, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0,60, BB folds, MP1 raises to $2,00 (All-In), Hero calls $1,40.

      Can you call a shortstacker with AK in a situation like this? BSS says to fold to a reraise with AK, but these shortstackers often push with JJ, QQ, AQ,... against which we are a favorite or ~50/50.

      Howdy,

      I think AKs is doing totally fine against guys shoving range. I wouldn't fold it. Only hands that you are doing really bad are AA/KK, anything else is close to flip not mentioning times when he's pissed off and shoving A2, KQ etc., so nh.

      Good luck!
