      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:

      MP3 (Hero):

      CO:

      SB:
      $2.41
      BB:
      $4.31
      MP1:
      $6.15


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, K.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, CO calls $0.15, BU calls $0.15, SB raises to $1.00, BB folds, Hero raises to $1.93, 2 folds, SB calls $0.93.

      Flop: ($4.21) 5, Q, 7 (2 players)


      Turn: ($4.21) 9 (2 players)


      River: ($4.21) 7 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $4.21.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of sevens(A K).
      SB shows two pairs, aces and sevens(A A).

      SB wins with two pairs, aces and sevens(A A).


      In the above situation, is it correct to go broke preflop with AK?

      Thanks in advance.

      Hey CCcyan,

      If you look at the SHChart one can see that AKs with MSS is a raise/broke from Middle Position.

      So despite the results ( I think that is the reason you have posted this hand ) you make money in the long run versus other hands than AA

      Obviously if you know he has AA, well then you should fold but no one knows that for 100% sure =)
