      orgamicraze wins $9.43 (net +$2.78)

      A_Benedek lost $2.93

      I know that I should go all in with AK after preflop raise has been made infront of me, but in this situation I just double up against the same oponent who shoved, so I somehow presume he has some mid pair or AJ,AQ and didint want to risk my newly doubled up stack to the coin flip.
      I wonder was this really bad decision to fold AK here?

      You can fold :) In fact I think that is the best play as the call option(=jam) is really gambling

      From a BSS perspective you can take your chances and shove but as you didn't invested any penny in this pot, you can safely fold

      However if you think he is the super maniac on the table by all means shoving is ++++EV and folding stays 0EV

      Best regards,
