      I would say also well payed, but many times happened to me that AK was sucked in more then 50% insuchsituations, so in micro limits i would fold preflop...

      Even if CO is a Short Stack you have to call i think. Because UTG likely has a Pocket like 66-99.

      Because at NL10 there are often even looser, i think you can't fold AK here considering the great Odds(you just need 23 % Equity).

      drachdudek, you can not fold AK here, its -EV, as Jaro explained. Considering the limit, I would say his range is pretty wide here... AK is big underdog only against AA and KK. Against pockets it`s only slight underog and favourite against all the other hands, so given the pot odds it is not really possible to lay this hand down..
