      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:heart: , A:heart:
      UTG+2 calls $0,50, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $2,00, MP3 folds, CO raises to $6,00, 4 folds, Hero raises to $8,50 (All-In), CO calls $2,50.

      Can I push here with AKs against suck a loose passive guy ? I dont see him 3-betting often preflop. Yes my sample size is rather short but 31/3 gave me enough info he is loose passive and rather calls than raise.

      Should I know that when he raises he has something like QQ+ /AKs?

      I need 38% according to the assumption if he calls me if I push ($8.5+$2)/$6.5

      Push or Fold?

      I'd go for it, if he got aces your doomed, for kings u got some outs and vs queens your fine. Against any other holding you're more than fine. And you need 38%, AKs vs top2% hands is about 38% dog, so you should be fine.

      I'd raise 5BB preflop, which also makes it easier to push his reraise :)
      As played I'd also push for sure.

      Bet 5bb pre of course, but even if you don't, it's a turboshove with just 17bb stack.

      edit: as for your concerns: 32 hands = no sample
