      Well, since I'm still getting my ass kicked I was reviewing the basic articles and noticed a discrepancy between the chart and the article.

      According to the chart for the initial phase, if there is more than one raise in front of you and you have AK, you should fold. If there is one, call.

      But then in the practical examples they have this regarding AK:

      Cards Position

      Late Position


      All players before you fold except for two - the first player, in the middle position, raises. The player right after him raises for a second time, and now it's your turn.

      Although both players before you have clearly demonstrated their strength, your hand is strong enough to re-raise yet again. You raise, because Ace King before the flop is just a really very strong hand.

      What are we supposed to do, after all?
