      Hi,

      With SSS as soon as you raise your AK preflop you always go AI if you get re-raised.

      So in this case you should have called.

      Hi,

      On Weaktight you can also use the option to copy your hand on the forum. For instance click ''STX"'



      and then you can paste it into your post which in the end you get this:

      $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      PokerStars
      9 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG pinchehussey ($15.11)
      UTG+1 Hero ($5)
      MP1 pofigizt ($4.65)
      MP2 Succub ($5.35)
      MP3 SandroVM ($12.69)
      CO Mavritanec ($4.30)
      BTN marcowy1 ($16.73)
      SB manyee ($6.25)
      BB ckacka11 ($5.35)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.35, 9 players) Hero is UTG+1 A:heart: K:club:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.75, 4 folds, marcowy1 calls $0.75, 1 fold, ckacka11 goes all-in $5.35, Hero folds, marcowy1 folds



      So about the hand:
      Looking at the SHC , one sees that you have to go all-in after someone raised BEHIND you with [b]TT+,AK[/b] hence since you have AK I would recommend you to shove this hand as suggested by other members before

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      lets explain y he has to call though,
      pot odds: 4.25/(0.75+0.35+10)=38.5% needed equity
      equity vs tight villian shipping range:JJ+,AK=39.8%
      therefore u must call
      equity vs loose shipping range:99+,AQs+,AKo=43.1%
