      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:diamond: , A:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, MP3 raises to $1,75, 4 folds, Hero calls $0,75.

      Hero checks, MP3 bets $3,38, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $7,23

      I know that a lot SSS would go all-in here pre-flop. But I like just call, because I´m often behind against AA, KK, tie with AK and coinflip with QQ, JJ.
      So if I hit K or A, then I can check and move all-in. The min-reraises sadly show mostly KK and AA.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:diamond: , K:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, MP2 calls $1,00, MP3 raises to $3,75, 4 folds, Hero calls $2,75, MP2 calls $2,75.

      Hero bets $1,24 (All-In), MP2 calls $1,24, MP3 raises to $3,25, MP2 calls $2,01.

      Turn: ($19,34) 5:heart: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $17,65 (All-In), MP3 raises to $17,59 (All-In).

      River: ($54,58) 6:diamond:


      Final Pot: $54,58

      I thought that I would fold here, but MP2 had called 1$, so I thought that he would also call extra 2,75$. I would have gone all-in with any flop.

      IMO, AK is a hand that likes to see all five cards. If re-raised behind its a straight push or fold PF. It depends on the amount of potential dead-money and of course the opponent.

      I think you check too much when a set hits the flop.. kind of makes it look like you're easy to push off your hand, regardless of what your opponent is holding.

      I push every hand here All-In preflop. If they hold AA or KK so it be, but often enough you have a coinflip and also have some fold Equity. I want to see 5 cards with AK.

      I think it all depend on the reads, if I have seen same people min re-raising with AA or KK, I would fold AK at any positsion, but if he also likes to min re-raise QQ-TT, AK, AQ- then I would go directly all-in. NL 25 BSS players seems tight enough to only re-raise UTG raiser with AA and KK.

      I think you are giving NL25 players WAY too much credit. I play at a different site than you, but I have seen re-raises with all kinds of junk. I almost never worry about pushing AK vs a re-raise...and AKo is currently my second most profitable hand (second only to AA.)

      IMHO,
