      On this limp/raise I seriously considered folding, but I had seen 13 hands of his and he had a VPIP/pfr of 67/11, which perhaps doesn't mean too much (he also seemed to be a fish from the way he actually played the hands). So after 5 seconds of extra time I called..?

      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Button ($48.75)
      SB ($52.10)
      BB ($51.50)
      UTG ($51.40)
      MP ($83.80)
      Hero (CO) ($9.25)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K
      BB calls $0.50, [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $2.25[/color], [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]BB raises to $7[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $9.25 (All-In)[/color], BB calls $2.25

      Flop: ($19.25) 2, A, 2 [color:#009B00](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Turn: ($19.25) 7 [color:#009B00](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      River: ($19.25) 5 [color:#009B00](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Total pot: $19.25 | Rake: $0.95

      Results in white below: [color:#FFFFFF]
      BB had Qc, 6h (one pair, twos).
      Hero had As, Kh (two pair, Aces and twos).
      Outcome: Hero won $18.30[/color]

      Hmm i don't think SSS is +EV at shorthanded tables. I'd rather play on full ring.
      But as played SSS says push all in after a reraise with AK if you have 4:1 ratio (your remaining stack : you original raise)
      So pushing was a right call.

      It's not a 6 handed table, there's a flaw in HeM - 3 people had just left the table or were sitting out or something so it thinks that it's 6 handed. But it was just a few hands where there were only 6, then more sat down. (or maybe I left, I can't remember exactly)

      Where do you get the 4:1 odds for AK from?

      I can't see a reason to fold AK to a limp/raise, no reason with 20bb and less if the table got short. easy insta-shove.

      +1

      Never fold AK after you raised and someone raises you.

      Doesn't anyone get worried about a limp/reraise? Surely that signals strength. Although I would probably give the villain a range of 22+, since I often see guys happy to go all in heads up against a short stack with a pocket pair. (This guy was particularly bad of course)

      You should go broke unless you have a read he ONLY limp/raises monsters, because AK is fliping against all PPs except KK+ and is ahead of all the other hands. But looking realistically you can't presume a player on NL25 to l/r just KK+. Most of the time you will see a PP as you said, but because of the money already invested you simply can't fold AK.

      Besides, the chances of him holding KK+ are lower because you hold AK.

      Hi wildbeans,

      No worry to be scared, mostly he holds a worser holding than you (I saw people doing this with ATo, 33, T9s etc.) so I push it and make a note of his play because every individual does limp/3bet with a different range.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
