      First thing- didn't noticed that I'm blinding out- saw AK- oh nutznutz raise!!1 ^^, normally I avoid from playing AK doublestacked from UTG. But on flop I hit my TP, so is this ok to go broke here with TPTK?

      AK is close to the nuts. TPTK is the nuts. nh.

      Your instincts were very solid. Don't be too scared to play good hands when double-stacked as I think your play is solid enough to cope with most situations. Of course be a little cautious, but don't through good hands away because the "risk" is too great. In a lot of good situations, you can make twice as much!!

      Well played! :P
