      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.87 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:heart: , K:heart:
      UTG calls $0.02, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.11, 2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.20 (All-In), Hero calls $0.08, SB calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.64) Q:spade: , 2:spade: , T:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.64, Hero calls $0.14 (All-In), SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($0.92) 4:heart:
      River: ($0.92) 2:diamond: (3 players)


      Final Pot: $0.92

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of deuces (Ah Kh)
      SB shows two-pair, queens and deuces (Ad Qh)
      MP1 shows two-pair, tens and deuces (Ac Td)

      SB wins with two-pair, queens and deuces (Ad Qh)

      Obviously I was wrong in that it didn't work out for me, but is it wrong to go all in like this with AK without making anything on the flop?

      well u had a solid 7 outs (14%) and u were getting 1:5.5 on the call, ie: u need 18% to make it profitable so i guess technically u shoulda folded. btw, couldnt u just go allin preflop. ps, play bss

      Hi,

      Obviously I was wrong in that it didn't work out for me
      That it didnt worked out doesnt matter. What matters is, if you made the right play ;)

      Never call preflop (other than all in). So as played re-raise all-in.

      In this case where there are 2 limpers and you have a slightly smaller stack (17xbb), you shouldnt even raise to 0.12 but go all-in directly. If you raise 0.12 you will be pot commited on any board, and you want to get your money in when you are favourite. In this hand, preflop you were the favourite, but on this flop you where the underdog.

      T.

      Hey holnrew,

      +1

      However, I believe 6BBs raise in position is well played, just go all-in after you're reraised preflop. Pushing preflop is also good, nothing wrong with either option.

      As played, you have a trash hand on the flop and should therefore give up.

      I would have raised all in pre-flop if I had the option, but for some reason the software would only let me call the $0.08. I think that maybe led to a little frustration.

      I really need to start working out outs and odds.
