      Hey pantasrb,

      Can you give any info on villain? This will have an influence on the best play.


      Normally this is a pretty good spot to just fold preflop. You haven't invested a large amount and this is going to be a very high variance spot.

      Equity of AK vs any 2 cards is only 65%. If opponent is only making this play with mid+ pocketpairs and good broadways (66+,AQs+,KQs,AQo+,KQo) you are basically coinflipping.

      Some players will only be limp shoving AA, maybe KK. All in all this will be pretty high variance and an unnecessary call.
