      Villian 1.7k/18/2

      $0.25/$0.5 No Limit Holdem
      10 players
      Converted at

      UTG ($49.00)
      UTG+1 ($43.90)
      UTG+2 ($50.00)
      MP1 ($60.70)
      MP2 ($49.25)
      Hero (MP3) ($9.75)
      CO ($48.60)
      BTN ($10.25)
      SB ($54.15)
      BB ($5.00)

      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 10 players) Hero is MP3 K: A:
      UTG raises to $1.75, 4 folds, Hero calls $1.75, 4 folds

      Flop: :4c: :3h: :7h: ($4.25, 2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: :8h: ($4.25, 2 players)
      UTG bets $4.25, Hero folds

      Final Pot: $8.50

      UTG wins $8.30 ( won +$2.30 )
      Hero lost -$1.75

      The guy is playing very tight, and i've played with him a lot, and he only raises the really premium hands AA/KK/QQ/JJ/AK. I didn't want to reraise as i'll have to push my AK if i reraise. I didn't really felt like flipping, plus there a 50% chance im behind.

      I know we shouldn't call most of the time, but could this be a spot to deviate?

      Against UTG raiser with 2 PFR you have an easy fold with AK. Just take a look at the article about adjusting reraise ranges according to the PFR of the opponents. I think calling is a leak.

      I fold AKo here. I don't bother calling, reason Being I assume that even if we hit we won't be able to extract enough money from his weaker hands to make it worthwhile.

      Oh, also please note, you're not flipping against a JJ+ AK+ range. He needs to be holding TT+ AQ+ for you to be flipping.

      Will you all stop calling preflop, please?
      Either your hand is strong and you reraise or its weak and you fold.

      Here i push, 2 PFR can also mean he limps his monsters
