      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      SB:
      $56.55
      BB:
      $33.25

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, K.
      UTG2 calls $0.50, MP1 calls $0.50, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.75, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $2.25, MP1 raises to $6, Hero folds, UTG2 etc.

      UTG2 13/8.5/limp-callEP67(8/12)/WTSD26/W$SD52/AF31/AFq46/6Khands
      MP1 unknow 57/0/7hands

      With a 20bb standard initial stack, I would have made a push instead a fold.

      Hi theperni,

      overlimp/raise is a very strange move and mostly done by fishy players. I don't think he is on a monster here, because I don't think he would overlimp it.

      As played, I would have pushed all-in. UTG2 is most likely dead money in this spot and the equity you need is 39.3% and with AK you easily have this much against MP1's range. If he's really bad you will see him having random crap hand trying to bluff you out of the hand. After I raise AK I'm going broke to the 3-bet also with double stack unless I have stats/reads to convince me otherwise.

      Regards,
