    Looks like you played this fine.
    I dont know if your stack is to big to go all in preflop but sometimes I just go all in preflop in those turbos when 2 people limp and I got like 25bbs probably bad not really sure tho.
    Im just thinking it could be better since when you raise you have to put in a good amount of your stack and since the one of the limpers is short he might limp call an all in with worse or your probably gunna flip with him.
    I think by just pushing you can get people to fold and have a heads up pot with a good hand instead of possibly having a multiway pot with alot of your stack already into the pot.
    As played I would have just put it all in when you reraise the short stack on the flop. Just unlucky he flopped two pairs.

      Hi kykkylik! With AK, I get 2 limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper or 250 chips. I want to keep all of my raises standard, so that it helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Also, with multiple opps already showing interest in the pot, I do not want to bet less than this, or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to be in the pot (something that I want to avoid doing whenever possible). I flop TPTK and an opp leads into me for an abnormally small bet of 250 (standard bet with 2 opps in the pot is 2/3 pot). Since there are draws available to both opps (straight and flush), I need to raise here. Since the standard bet to price out an opp from drawing is 2/3 pot, I need to raise by 2/3 pot (917 chips).. BUT.. this bet pot-commits me, which means that if I make it, I cannot ever fold. Due to this, I need to shove the flop. These beats will happen and we definitely want the guy in the pot with us preflop, with a dominated hand. However, they will win about 3 in 11 times. The key is to make the correct bets/raises and make the best decisions possible and one is to make standard raises, not smaller ones than standard that can price in opponents. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) P.S. pokerstar671, I only want to shove preflop when I'm pot-committed. A standard raise here is not even close to pot-committing me, so that's not an option.
