      Hey ricstefano,

      would you mind telling me your stack size? I'm not sure you were playing SSS here, so if this is BSS hand I will ask moderator to move your hand to BSS forum to be evaluated by BSS handjudge.

      Hey ricstefano,

      with 25 big blinds I would just directly push AKs preflop here against the initial raiser. There is no calling with short stack strategy and you either push or fold preflop when there was a raise before you. Since AK is a reraise hand you should therefore push.

      If a player behind you has AA, then that's just bad luck, but it shouldn't happen too often. It's called "cooler" when you make the right play, but someone has a better hand than you. However as long as you play right you'll be the long term winner and that's all that counts.
