      Don´t know if I should move all-in right away or call and then move all-in with any flop or if I don´t hit anything then check/fold

      1)I try for a free card in that spot.

      2)AK is ideal in this spot.NH.

      3)With stack-sizes it doesn't matter too much whether you push pre-flop or not. Interestinglty it is a fold PF if villain's playing QQ+,AK.

      4)Ugly, but you are priced in to call here. I see no escape.

      5)See 3) above. Flop fold looks good as you're splitting at best here versus any rational villain.

      1) I think your all-in is good here. SB usually would bet around potsize on the flop if he was under low pockets, So I think most times you're ahead here. if SB moved you immediatly to all-in, I would fold with this flop.

      2) nothing wrong with going all-in with AK preflop I think (especially against big stacks)

      3) Sometimes (rarely, but sometimes) A on the flop can scare away hands like QQ JJ TT (you don't get max profit if you hit on the flop), so would be better to go all-in preflop I think. but all in all, I don't think it matters that much.

      4) with this kind of flop, raise usually means you're behind. ofcourse he could be on a draw, against which your hand would be ok, but mostly I think MP2 has pockets here against which you are quite much behind. I would fold the raise and wait a better opportunity.

      5) I would go all-in preflop - from my experience, AK is good and profitable hand to go all-in with at preflop if you raised on preflop and someone reraised you. (especially on NL25 where bigstacks raises often even with AJ AQ)

      1. Since you are against 2 opponents , i would check/fold it. Against a single opponent you could do a normal contibet (Your stack size would be too big in that occasion to go directly all in)
      2. Good play. I think such overraising from early pos usually means a medium pair like 77-TT that he desperately wants to protect from overcards.
      3. Go directly all-in after his reraise. The thing if you call is , no matter what flop you get, you have to go all in since you get 3:1 on your money. So go all in preflop.
      4. He might be holding a small pocket here , against which you have the odds to call his minreraise. Thats why you should probably go directly all in on the flop yourself to maximize fold equity.
      5. Same as hand 3, go directly all-in. Check/fold was too weak here since you only had to call an amount of around half the pot.

      There is no flat calling a raise preflop in SSS , except perhaps a minraise in special occasions. Its push or fold.

      Thanks for advises

      So no calling then with AK:)

      Nunki 3 and 5. He re-raise with AT on the 3rd example (so their hand range isn´t quite qq+, AK)

      My point is that betting it all PF/becoming tied to the pot with AK can be wrong. You can sometimes get away. Sometimes you can be very happy to bet it all PF with AK. At NL10 I saw someone call 100BB with AT!!! Low hanging fruit.
