      The big slick

      Hello fellow rounders.

      I find AK to be an exceptional hand to bet on turn, if on the unfortunate occurance that it missed the flop. All be it, if there isn't a bet before you to act on the turn. I find in many situations, timidness of others gets you the pot when bet appropriately

        I have realized that AK is very strong pre-flop but it diminishes in its strength when the player misses the flop. In the past I have always got married to the hand and ended up losing more money than I should. AK means Big Slick for most players, but for me it is Ann Kourokova. Because it looks great but rarely wins.

        My Question is: If I miss the flop, should I C-bet when my opponent has called my pre-flop raise? Does it have a chance of working? Or should I consider checking?

            Hi there,
            Ok, AK! In my opinion, AK looks pretty good pre-flop but if you miss it post flop it's garbage.
            My question is: Would you play AK off suit same as AK suited pre-flop? and Would you just check post flop when you miss it or would you c-bet it?

            Best regards,

                  AK is very strong pre-flop is a hand that have to raise or re-raise but in pots multiway can be a hand to bring you many problems if you hit. My Question is : ¿is rentable to call With AhKh when 2 players in front to you re raise all in and the flop is? Jd Ks

                    Hi Paul,

                    I just sent in a question about the differences in playing AK during cash games vs tournaments.

                    Best of luck with the show.

                          PodCast Question AK

                          My question is: "On pre-flop, the A/K are great cards and should be played as such with a 3-5bb. However, how should we play them if a opponent continues to match our bets or re-raise us?"
                          I have won many times with A/K but have lost many times as well. I believe that we get over confident with these type of cards. Gerald

                              I usually play AK(o) very strong. AK(s) even stronger as if i had a pair of JJ or even QQ ,even three betting and isolating opp. However my question is, if for some reason i played passive, not three betting a raise, or just calling a family pot. Then the flop comes AAK or KKA, what then? how should i play this if it is check 2 me? check back? what about a bet to me should I re raise?

                              Thanks guys.
