      Hi everyone,

      I've had AKo twice on the bubble with another small stack sitting out for quite a while. In the first hand I decided to minbet, hoping to get the Chipleader in the BB to fold and collect the dead money from the SB (sitting out). Unfortunately the BB calls and donks on the flop. Since I have missed the flop completely I see no other option than folding.

      In the second hand I decide to open-fold since I do not want to risk to lose any more chips (particularly not all of them) to the chipleader.

      Would you have pushed in those situations? Or would you have also open-folded the first hand? What is your line otf in the first hand?
