      I'm playing on mac and java version, so unfortunatly no way to record hands, but one question..

      NL 20

      I was dealt AKo in Button, everyone folded, CO raised .6, i raise to 1.20 blinds fold, Co calls.

      Pot $2.70
      A 7 9 rainbow, He bets, I all-in..

      He has A 3 off , i win pot, around $8.

      The hand after, i get AK in CO, folds and one limper around to same villan, hes all in.. I dont have any stats but have noticed he goes on tilt after almost any lost, so I call.

      Is this right thing to do, with a stack of nearly 40 BB?

      Hi Dadude77,

      When going for a reraise, never ever minreraise! Why? Because it gives your opponent to hit his hand often and you will lose money in the long term.

      I would reraise to $1.8 and if thats 40% of your stack or more, go all-in instead.

      About your question about doubled stack and AKo, well play it as though you would play it if you have a 20bb stack so All-In!

      Best regards,

      Gerv

      oops, i had mistyped, he min raised, it was .4

      Ok, because he ended up sucking out on me with an AT, but wasnt sure of the right play

      No because you will be committed on any Flop if he calls so basically you give him free cards to see ;)
