      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K (Comment)
      UTG+1 calls $0.10, UTG+2 raises to $2.04 (All-In), 5 folds, Hero raises to $2.10 (All-In), 2 folds.

      Flop: ($4.34) 5, 6, 4 (Comment)
      Turn: ($4.34) 9 (Comment)
      River: ($4.34) 7 (Comment)


      Final Pot: $4.34

      I was involved in this hand and I think it's wrong to call an all in preflop call here with AK because you are a little bit behind to any pocket pair.

      With wich hands would you call an All In move here, JJ+ or better (KK+)?

      If at the first question your answer is to tighten up, when should I tighten when I'm faced with a raise preflop (but not an all in move)?, but something like 6BB+ with no other limper in the pot.

      Thank you,
      Bogdan

      Hi mdkpoker83,


      first of all you should think about which hands he would shove here, so when you think he shoves AA,KK,QQ,JJ,AK then you use the equilator and give him the range and then minimum equity 50% and equilate there you see you can only call with kk+. when you loose his range you calling range loosen up.
