      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with A K
      Hero raises to $0.08, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.08, MP3 folds, CO raises to $1.01 and is all-in, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.93, MP2 folds

      Flop: ($2.13) Q 2 Q (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($2.13) 3 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($2.13) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Don't really feel comfortable going AI with AK, even tho I keep hearing people says it's that good, but is it ok my line of play?
      Or can I refrain from doing this?
      I seem to loose alot with AK, maybe I'm just unlucky don't know :)

      Hello Resilence,

      Wouldn't say you are unlucky, it's common mistake that people overplay AK type of hands. The case what you get here if the opponent was a tight player is a coinflip. :) Vs a full-stack it would be easy fold but vs his stack I guess shouldn't be even that bad if you also assumed he isn't very good player and may shove with worse.

      If rather tighter according to those stats I'd just fold.

      Best Regards.
