      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.05 BB (6 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      SB ($3.56)
      BB ($14.86)
      UTG ($2.26)
      MP ($7.05)
      Hero (CO) ($5)
      Button ($2.34)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A
      UTG calls $0.05, MP raises to $0.25, Hero raises to $0.55, Button raises to $2.34 (All-In), 5 folds

      Total pot: $1.47 | Rake: $0

      Button didn't show
      Outcome: Button won $1.47

      Button seemed too strong. Even though he is short stack I don't want to invest more money on a cointoss or worse.

      Raise to 0,75$ preflop.

      Other than that it's ok for me to fold AK against an all-in, even by the shortstack.


      You have to call 2,34-0,55=1,80$ in order to win a pot of 2,34+2,34+0,25+0,05+0,05=5$

      So you need to win in 1,8/5= 36% of the cases to be +EV.

      In equilator you can find that your equity against a villain's tight range of JJ+, AK is about 40% and that's totally sufficient. If he could go all-in with TT or even Aq it's only getting better.

      AND if you made it 0,75 reraise it increases your odds even more.

      So if my reasoning and calculations are good I was wrong before and it's a clear call. :)

      Since player is middle-stack then it is easy call.
      He would shove a wide range of hands.
