      With 4 PFR its close, but folding also isn´t an option. I assume you might had a coinflip at its best.

      I adjust his open raise range from MP3 to at least 5 PFR, which gives us 48.6% equity and some fold equity. Therefore, push is fine.

      Yeah, I can't possibly imagine myself folding AK preflop - don't remember if such a situation happend ever before.

      But lately I'm loosing a lot with them and thought I may be playing them bad or sth. Don't really want to blame variance, it's normally the worst thing you can do - blame variance, abandon learning and start rotting ;) .
