      CO: t3500 5.83 BBs
      BTN: t2160 3.60 BBs
      Hero (SB): t2990 4.98 BBs
      BB: t4850 8.08 BBs

      Pre Flop: (t900) Hero is SB with A :diamond: K :heart:
      CO raises to t3500 all in, 1 fold, Hero calls t2690 all in, 1 fold

      Flop: (t6580) 3 :heart: 2 :heart: Q :club: (2 players - 2 are all in)

      Turn: (t6580) 9 :heart: (2 players - 2 are all in)

      River: (t6580) 5 :heart: (2 players - 2 are all in)

      CO is a decent multitabler. BB is a not bad unknown.

      EDIT: Soz, wrong forum. Can someone move it to the hand evaluation?

      According to ICM you should be calling with 5.4% range, which is 99+ AJs+ AQo+.

      In the future you can use http://www.holdemresources.net/ to put in stack sizes and make your own calculations.

      my opinion you made a good choose, becouse you were ss. The only time you can fold ak in late phase when you have large stack and bigger stack shoves into you. and there are other pl with moore less then you. This is from turbo sng.

      There are other times to fold AK preflop. For example, as the short stack, you generally should not overcall with AK on the bubble when two players shove in front of you.

      Anyway, I think this is a call. AKo has a lot of equity even against some tighter ranges, and I would not put a reg on an overly tight range when pushing for under 10 big blinds on the bubble, even though it is from the CO and into the big stack.
