      I would do the same thing - All-in pre-flop. I believe it is good poker strategy to isolate to one opponent with AK. Keep playing like that and you will find in addition to the small PP you will get alot of calls from weaker aces. I call that paydirt, as you have them reduced to one card poker, its your K against thier Q or less. I had a Jack for lunch, you? :D

      Hi There Bu11dog!

      First of all, this sample hand forum is utilized to give feedback on your plays. So the outcome of the hand is not of importance and in fact, can give you - in the end - wrong advices as we are influenced by it.

      With AKs and facing a raise (4bb) , it is correct to move all-in with a stack of 15.5BB

      Well played!

      Hi TheBu11d0g,

      nice hand well played against a shorty you have 52% equity and he can even fold some more hands which increases your equity.
