      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:heart: , K:diamond:
      UTG1 raises to $0.15, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 3 folds, UTG1 raises to $5.27 (All-In), Hero calls $4.39 (All-In), UTG1 gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

        Should I go broke with AK in here? I put the original raiser to QQ+ AQ+ after his all-in re-raise. In this situation is this a clear fold? or it depends?

        If I could remember, I should fold this one because the BSS mentioned I should only proceed with AA and KK when facing a re-raise.

      Flop: ($9.75) K:spade: , T:spade: , 2:club:
      Turn: ($9.75) Q:spade:
      River: ($9.75) 7:diamond: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $9.75

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG1 shows a pair of aces (Ad Ac)
      Hero shows (Ah Kd)

      UTG1 wins with a pair of aces (Ad Ac)

      You can consider flatting preflop and playing AK postflop - whereby you should be cautious if you hit A/K and he keeps betting near pot like all 3 streets.

      As played although it sucks I 3bet/fold this - although you have barely any sample on him he doesn't really look like a spewy kind of player - and so until you gather a few more reads i prefer to fold and wait for better spots.

      I understand. I'll keep that in mind. :D

      Although it sucks that I can't use elephant for rush poker so that I can have at least a decent assumption of what type of opponent I'm facing. :)

      (this hand was rush poker btw...)
