      I've been a member on PS for quite some time, and learned the basic and bronze articles a long time ago on NL BSS, and as i recall, when facing a reraise with AK you go all in, in most situation. Of course there is an exception to this rule, depending yours and your opponents stack size, and your info on the opponent, but All In is the prefereable move. Am i right?

      I am asking because in the basic articles i just found out that you always fold a reraise with AK.

      Your opinion on the subject would be appreciated.

      Thanks :)

      Usually that is a correct decision. However you must play opponent based.

      If you give him rr range TT+, AKs, AKo:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    41.14%  28.13%  13.01% { AKs, AKo }
      MP3    58.86%  45.85%  13.01% { TT+, AKs, AKo }

      If you give him pairs lower than KK: 88-QQ,

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    44.51%  44.31%   0.20% { AKs, AKo }
      MP3    55.49%  55.29%   0.20% { QQ-88 }
