      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO = ($11.80)
      BU = ($9.99)
      SB = ($18.52)
      BB (Hero) = ($10.42)
      MP2 = ($9.90)
      MP3 = ($7.11)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K :heart: , A :heart: .
      MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10, CO raises to $0.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.60, MP2 raises to $9.90, 2 folds, Hero ???

      Seems like a weak/tight player looking to get his stack in with AA. 6-max is so fast and aggressive that he may feel, being new to the table, that an open raise UTG would give off too much info and force the rest of the table to fold. By showing weakness he invites callers if someone else does the betting for him.

      Judging by the preflop breakdown, you're facing a pretty strong pair, if not a premium hand. Best advice either way is to fold AK. You simply don't know anything about the player to justify a call. Muck the hand, and if anyone else is stupid enough to call, you can gain that information for free.

      Hello cozacu,

      Against limp/raise I am pretty much inclined to almost always fold here. :) It's going to be way too often a trap. :/ As you said the guy was unknown so ain't worth risking, at the best a coinflip.

      Best Regards.
