  • Can I stack off with AK?

    It's MTOPS Main Event $15 with multiple Day 1's , 10k starting stack, 5 mins blind level I have 45BB, I raised 2.5x and one player 3-bet shove from BB . What should I do I have no idea what he has if he has a pair then I am flipping , I don't know if it's logical to flip for 45BB Rest all the he is shoving with I am ahead even if he has offsuit Full Tilt Poker Game #34293206772: MTOPS Main Event (Day 1d) (266270429), Table 47 - NL Hold'em - 100/200 Ante 20 - 23:17:10 IST - 2014/06/04 [13:47:10 ET - 2014/06/04] Seat 1: adikumar2010 (9,019) Seat 2: delysid6 (9,275) Seat 3: LuckyDuy (9,603) Seat 4: Masiello21 (12,620) Seat 5: jonathan_85 (30,670) Seat 6: lucorti (28,341) Seat 7: Lu4nv1 (12,305) Seat 8: Mattwut1 (9,960) Seat 9: NicoZipfel23 (8,895) adikumar2010 antes 20 delysid6 antes 20 LuckyDuy antes 20 Masiello21 antes 20 jonathan_85 antes 20 lucorti antes 20 Lu4nv1 antes 20 Mattwut1 antes 20 NicoZipfel23 antes 20 Masiello21 posts the small blind of 100 jonathan_85 posts the big blind of 200 The button is in seat #3 *** HOLE CARDS *** Dealt to adikumar2010 [ ] lucorti folds Lu4nv1 folds Mattwut1 folds NicoZipfel23 folds adikumar2010 raises to 500 delysid6 folds LuckyDuy folds Masiello21 folds jonathan_85 raises to 30,650, and is all in adikumar2010 STATS : Equity / Win / Tie 44.70% 40.66% 4.04% { 22+, ATs+, KQs, AJo+, KQo } 55.31% 51.27% 4.04% { AhKh } PS: We can see I am ahead of his range, but is it worth taking risk for 5% extra equity with my 45BB stack.

    I'm snap folding without a read on what he does this with.

      Early level, I can fold to the shove

      You have plenty of time to wait for a better spot and whilst AK is a flipping hand preflop, do you need to be flipping this early?

      Why go for a 50/50 spot when you have 80/20 spots ahead of you

        Hi all,

        I guess I'll buck the trend, I'm calling here. 42bb is a nice enough stack to continue with if we fold, but considering it's a turbo structure I don't mind taking some educated risks to accumulate chips.

        What's his range to do this? Hard to say, but the educated guesses are:

        -In most normal cases it's a hand the player doesn't want to see a flop with. 99-JJ, AK/AQ come to mind.

        -Villain has been a hyper-LAG in the 24 hands we've seen with him, which supports a wider range imo not a tighter one. So I wouldn't rule out non-sense like small pairs, A-rag suited or the like.

        I wouldn't make any wildly loose calls, but I am willing to gamble with TT+/AK here for sure.
