      Had no hands on player, I don't really think my push here was v.good (I did it because I was trying to play too many tables at once and sort of auto did it) but if it not really a push would it be suitable to be pushing if say I had AsKs and the flop was Ad7s6s? This is all against player I have no hands on.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Unless you know that he will reraise you on the flop with a weaker ace, middle pair or flushdraw i think this would be a fold.
      Even though... this is a tough laydown for me too.

      If you think he can check/raise some draws or worse made hands your line is okay.

      That being said, he had a full stack at the start of the hand even tho he just paid the BB. Feels like autorebuy to me, which means a reg most likely. And he called your UTG raise from the SB:

      - he's not calling preflop with a lot of weaker Ax hands, maybe AQ only, and if he is, he's not going to check/raise the flop with them.

      - he's not calling preflop out of position with tons of suited connectors, and if he has those sometimes, he shouldn't expect to have much fold equity on an A-high flop, so he might not even check/raise a flushdraw/straight draw.

      - he is often calling with any pocket pair to setmine, and he will 100% check/raise if he hits, check/fold if he misses.

      So like painterman007 said, it's tough, but it's a spot where against a player who's not a fish, your AK equals A2, and as sad as it is, you're likely better off folding it.

      Hope it helps.
