      I´ve played now a while SSS and I think it´s mostly wrong re-raise AK all-in against early raises. TAG-s raise there TT-AA and AK, so my EV is - . There´s no point calling, then I would just fold:) When the raise is MP or LP or I see that the early raiser is LAG, then it should be ok to go all-in. Imo all-in is also fine if there is at least one caller, because then I should get good pot odds.

      Am I right?

      No ;)

      Because I think TAGs have a wider range: TT-AA, AK, AQ, KQs maybe also smaller pocket pairs. Here are the results from our tool "Equilator":

      Player : Equity \ Win \ Tie \ Loss \ Hand
      Player 1: 49,557% \ 38,721% \ 21,671% \ 39,608% \ TT+, AQ+, KQs
      Player 2: 50,443% \ 39,608% \ 21,671% \ 38,721% \ AK

      Good luck at the tables!

      After thinking it a while, I think that I am still right. When you play according to the SHC BSS then you raise early position only AQ+, AK+, JJ+. Then my equity with AKo would be 50,106% and with AKs 52,528%, which imo is not good enough, because Partypoker wants also rake:) .

      I also wondered one other thing, if I raise UTG with JJ and there is re-raise from MP2 who is very tight player, I should fold. Again according to the SHC in the BSS you should reraise with AKo, AKs, QQ+. If I call with JJ my equity is 36,190%!!! and I don´t get 3-to-1 to get even. With AKo my equity is 38,824% (I don´t know if I should even then go all-in, when I´ve only invested 1$ and he re-raised 3$- and I´ve left 4$). Only AKs sounds fine- equity 41,904%:P and QQ- equity 40,207%.

      I know that hand range is working against very tights players and there are still fishes who reraise with 99+ and AQ:) , but against tight Pokerstrategy players I should lay down my JJ and AK;)


      By the way. Thanks Pokerstrategy. Love Equilator tool- helped a lot to do some math:P
