      Pre-flop: definitely not all-in. U can raise for value if u think u get a call by any worse hand. AK is still a drawing hand pre-flop, u need to hit to win.
      What do u achieve by all-in, nothing: al bad hands fold and better hands snap call u. Most of the time u missing the value of bad hands.

      Flop. Unless he made a set, u probably have the best hand. So why did u just call his re-raise? Most of the time he has a worse hand and he is willing pay u. So put it in and get the maximum value.

      Turn/River standaard.

      Hello Peter68a,

      Add to full stack if yo playing BSS. But otherwise Not much to comment, especially vs 6bb open. We might even decide instead just folding our hand cause his raise is way too strong.

      Best Regards.
