Hi Verarlockloy!

Is this from a cash table or a tourney and if a toruney, which one. Every game has a bit of a different strategy, so we need this information to get you the best reply possible (and to move the post to the appropriate hand analysis section.

Please let me know and we'll gladly help you with it.

He already answered that question. It is an astrology freeroll game.

First off, the replayer isn't working, at least on my machine. I will tell you that in my opinion, the ace-king hand is far too overvalued. I find it a chip drainer. It looks great as a pre flop hand, but my overall success rate is below 50%, especially when suited.

If I cannot see the flop, and on the cheap, I recommend folding ace-king, suited or not. In a freeroll game, even more so. In the early phase of these astrology freerolls, it seems at least one player goes all-in pre flop every hand. Unless you have pocket aces, kings, or queens, fold.

Once you get past the third round, you'll know which players are the maniacs. Again, ace-king suited is initially a great hand. However, miss the suit and/or have the flop come up with middle cards, (5 - 9), you're hand is worthless. This is why I said the ace-king should be played with caution.

I also know my play of ace-king may cause my poor performance. If memory is accurate, there is a training video on this site about the proper way to play the ace-king. Their recommendations didn't help, but that might be because I'm on the play chip side.

Hi Vera,

With a 28bb stack I would an extremely compelling reason to raise/fold a premium hand, of which AKs qualifies.

Preflop your raise sizing is a bit small over a limper, might tweak that up a little.

When this guy jams I would always call on this stack size unless the guy were a super nit (extremely tight/conservative player). With the only read being "hubble freeroll" I'll assume we are not dealing with a nit.

@Cairn, I did a series on AK called the big slick dilema, but not sure you mean that since it was revolving around deep stack situations mostly, which is obvliously very different from most tourney spots outside of the first couple levels.

I don't disagree with this, but here it's not an early stage, it's mid-stage (most stacks range from 11-45bb's). And the fact that it's a freeroll should encourage you to play AK more, not less imo... because peeps will be putting chips in with even wider ranges of hands so AK fairs even better than "normal".

Also structure plays a part... if it's a fast structure, I would gamble early with AK every time... even in an early phase, as that phase quickly erodes in a fast structure. It's important to chip up quickly in those.

i would definitely call here, if he's shoving 66 here then he's definitely shoving hands that you dominate like AQ. It would be a big mistake for you to fold especially with the dead chips in play
