      Hey Brood!

      Preflop: What am I seeing, a min3bet? If you're going to 3bet preflop, make it 3x which is 90c in this case.

      Flop: I make a Cbet here usually

      Turn: OK as played


      As to your question, I would shove AKs for 61bb anytime even against UTG raiser, unless his "nittyness" is something extraordinary :]

      Good question. I think veriz or Tribun should answer it better than me, I'm no FR player :)

      Preflop: Raise $0.90.
      Flop: Nice flop to C-Bet after he shows weakness with checking.
      Turn: Fold.

      Go broke preflop vs this guy, he even doesn't have a full stack.

      I think I need to read an article on playing AK or something.
      I play AK scared because I usually miss flop and have to fold.
      So why should I build up pot pf? Mostly they dont fold pf and sometimes dont fold postflop with pp if flop is ragged.

      It would seem that way. I was a little hesitant playing AK too, esp, with 3-betting preflop. But now that I think about it, AK is the best non-paired hand preflop. I'm ahead vs any hand except for pocket pairs (lots of ppl will play AQ-AT for stack, esp if they're suited, cuz it 'looks nice'). Even if i'm up vs. pocket pairs, i've got decent chance of winning (even though behind) vs. anything QQ or lower.

      I´m not folding there AKs, unless his stats is smt like 3/3 in very large sample size. Against that open you can likely fold AKs pf.
