      I've been thinking about whether Big Slick is decent enough with SSS to go All-In preflop if you got reraised. Or Big Slick in tourneys late game.

      So far, Stats tell me that Ive been a losing player with AKs or AKo almost 65% of the time.

      In my opinion, AKo and AKs is a drawing hand so you should call any reraise and see what the flop brings. If you did not hit the flop, your out.


      But I really don't know the ( fold )equity of AK so if anyone could help me out, thank you very much. ;)

      For a SSS-er,its insta push . You are ahead against an opponent with wider range(88+, ATs+, KJs+, AJo+, KQo),50/50 vs standart calling SSS shove range(TT+, AQs+, AQo+),and 40/60 against the tightest range i could imagine(QQ+, AKs, AKo), but as you have a lot of dead money in the pot(yours), you have to go all in.
      Late stages of a tournament is trickier, but if you are a short stack(<11BB), its almost everytime an easy push
