      I played at the zoom tables at pokerstars (NL2).
      I raised to 0,06 with 10's on the button and BB (0,63USD) raised to 0,18.
      What do i do here? And if he had AK, is it worth doing a flip? I ended with folding the hand. And if he shoved, would it have been a difference?

      Hi Hvard92,

      AK is just one hand in his range. You have to compare your hand with his potential range.

      For example 99+, AQs+, AKo.

      Or JJ+, AK.

      Given he has 31.5 BB we can go broke with him if he is really loose. Otherwise folding is still correct.

      Ok. But on zoom tables. You kinda have to just play abc poker and assume everybody is tags right? Because you have no reads or stats on anyone. So if i run into this situation again against an unknown, it is right to fold?

      A shove would marginal so yes I don't mind folding when your average opponent is tight, including the short stacks.
