      Results follow:

      Should I ever fold AK preflop, even against tight player who plays 8/8/11?

      Against a player who play 11/8 you can better not go all in with AK. It looks a bit weak, but I think you can fold against a 11/8 player. But it depends also on stats like 3-bet stats.

      Hello Sinnology,

      Against that kind of nit just fold AK, there is no point in going broke, he will often times have a very strong hand which is raising and at the best case you get a flip.

      Best regards.
