I can t find the hand but i had AKs on sb i raise 2.5 bb it was the later stages of a tournament everyone has folded the bb goes all in if i call im all in aswel

so do i call here or fold i didn't have any reads on him until later on when someone caught him out where he shoved 7 2, i did have some stats on him but that was his vpip and pfr which was fairly tight


If he had shoved after all the times i seen him shoving later on i would of called but do you call a shove with AKs when this is the 1st time your saw a tight player shove or do you fold

It depends on the money/bubble situation, precise stack sizes, reads/stats on a player etc etc, but I'm usually happy to call it off with AK for 20bb. You're flipping with most pairs and in great shape against hands like AQ and KQ.
