This is a standard line, you have the odds to call vs PPs other than AA/KK, and have other hands dominated. You have a bit too much of a stack to open shove here and expect to get called by less then QQ+ AQ+, but someone with worse can certainly shove over you, so I like this play a lot with AK.

When you call here there is a wider range you will be up against. I also like limp shoving if you know someone will raise in LP.

I agree with Arch on this one too. If you do not put your opponent on either AA or KK, then it's a must call, because they priced you into the pot (you get paid 3X on your $$).

Don't know if you won the hand, but I'm calling this every time, unless I specifically put someone on AA or KK (which won't happen often).

The only thing I'd have done different, is that your intital raise, I'd have made it 600 instead of 500 (3X the last bet). If you do the 3X consistantly, then you can set up a bluff with the same bet later in the tourney.
Show the opponent a winning hand or two (if you have to) with the same raise and you can get a bluff to work later on with the same bet in the tourney.......... probably shouldn't have said that, as it may get me in trouble in the future when they re-instate PS in the USA, as it's something that's worked for me alot in the past live and online.

archide I don't understand the abbreviation for PP, and you said that I have the odds to call vs. PP, can you give me some numbers?

JWK24, what do you mean by you get paid 3x on your money? can you provide sum numbers?

PP = Pocket Pair

"3x an your money" is the equivalent of 3:1 odds or paying $100 to gain $300.

PPs = Pocket Pairs

Odds vs 55 with AK are close to 50%..so you're good to get it in considering the cost vs reward ratios (or pot odds).

I mostly agree with arch. I think we can open shove and still get looser calls in a $1 game.
