      Should I have folded AKo in the hands above? I had 500 and 900 hands on them, with a PFR% of 7 and 5 and they were raising from UTG. According to the "Adjusting the reraise-ranges"-article I should fold. Is this correct?

      Does it matter that I "only" play NL25? Is it okay to start using the more advanced articles as long as I have stats on the villains?

      I think they are both folds specially the second one against a 7/5 guy , AKo doesn't go well against their ranges

      heh, Its always good to improve Your game whatever Limit you are on. You will still improve your winrate, It did for me :) I think only advanced stuff you can't apply on NL25 is sklansky pushes and playing with a reduced stack. Rake is too high for you to make decent profit I think.

      With regards to the hands, I like folding in these two examples although the first example is closer and I may still push If I know more about his positional Stats.

      Exactly the type of answer I was looking for. Thanks!
