    I've readjusted my calling range to a 3-bet preflop and/or 3-bet shove call pre flop to AA-QQ & AK. Nothing more. JJ seems to get cracked way too often for it to be a 3-bet shove calling hand. You're dominated by 2 overs if they come, and in this case they did. It's probably a close race, I don't have pokerstove right now to see the numbers. And to get rivered an Ace, that hurts. You kind of get the feeling that he was on a steal, but at the same time, he had a hand to back himself up. Sorry man. Looks like you were running pretty well, too.

      I guess if you all want. I can put my tourney life on the line with a 3 bet shove with at best a drawing hand. If we all want to stop respecting the UTG raise because we have AK off. So be it. Consider it DONE! I have the money and will be calling to run everyone down.

        The only two hands you are a big dog to with AK are AA & KK. You are flipping against QQ & lower pairs and dominate smaller aces.

        Let say you are open raising range from EP (TT+, ATs+, KQs, AJo+ = 6.5%), AK is ahead of that range 56:44. If your 3-bet shove calling range is TT+, AK then the 3 bettor has ~45% fold equity but is a 60:40 dog when called.

        As I see it neither player made a mistake. Sometimes poker happens.

                I'm not trying to be condescending or anything, JT. TrumpinJoe confirmed my thoughts as the race being pretty close. For me 60/40 isn't total dominance on either end. Think of it this way. What if you had the AK and said villian had JJ? Wouldn't you have opened in a similar fashion and, considering you call the all-in, although in my opinion probably would have folded AKo to a shove, have been the one to river a miracle card? While AK is technically a drawing hand, it is a very strong starting hand. There are many that do overvalue it, as do I sometimes. But I guess he felt that AK was strong enough to race with. I mean, maniac play to say the least, and I feel for you. Like I said, you seemed to have been running very well for that tourney. Hope you start running hot.

                  Nope, I used to fold AK to an UTG raiser. However, my game is opened up now! I used to fold pre when I knew I was behind. Game On!!!!!

                    Allow me to complete my analysis with a complete EV calculation. Here are my assumptions:
                    Fold Equity = 50%
                    Win % = 20%
                    Lose % = 30% (this corresponds to being a 60:40 dog 1/2 the time)

                    Fold = win 6200 * 50% FE = 3100
                    Win = 25574 (23374 + blinds +antes) * 20% = 5115
                    Lose = 23374 * 30% = 7012

                    EV = 3100 + 5115 - 7102 = 1202

                    So this move by two_isles has a small +ev (5% of chip stack)
