      bl, they are played well

      but they're tournaments, we are supposed to drink badbeats and eat variance.

      AK is good in later stages of any sng/MTT

      in first hand you were 70/30 to win and cant expect to win them all & second one is coin flip

      just remember AK will ony hit flop 1 in 3 and board 1 in 2 and you are pushing with A high but with loads of players pushing with Ax is why AK plays so well

      In the first hand she (I assume it's a girl since it would be kind of weird nick for a guy IMO) pushes all in with the CO still in the hand and risks a stack of almost 40BB. In the second hand there are still players to act behind her who have her covered and she's pushing like 16,5BB.
      What's your opinion on that? I wouldn't push this but maybe that's just me playing bad... ?(

      @ LuborC- 1st I was trying to squeeze CO out of the hand, and get heads up vs the shortstack, Most players won't call shortstacks raise with a monster, they're either raising to isolate it or folding weaker hands... I've got no idea why he just called that raise so I'd say it was a bad play on their part.

      The 2nd hand.. only 2 players to act after me so, pushing there is the only option I think? With 16BB your meant to push AK vs one raise.

      We have to isolate, especially with AK. Do some playing around with equilator/pokerstove in multiway pots and watch your equity plunge. Remember it's a drawing hand; heads up we are strong but in a multi way pot we are not (until we hit).

      I used to hate AK too tbh but I used to play it pretty awfully too, imo the most important thing to remember is that we don't have a made hand preflop.
