It is easy to go all in with AA and KK in CG. What about AKs?
It was a very last hand of my session and to be honest i did not want to finish loosing chips so I rather folded but I am wondering what was the correct play with AKs here?

two raiser and we don't have a position. Hijack 35hands, 29/17, cutoff 22hands, 43/19

or in generall how to play AKo and AKs when sitting cutoff, button or blinds and we have two raiser? Would you go all in pre-flop agaisnt a new player when you have no stats about him?

thanks a lot.

Hi Rogger,

I don't like the fold here. I would only fold if both villains were tight conservative nits, but neither of them are. The opener is 29/17 and from the hijack probably wider, and the smallish 3b is coming from a 43/19 half stacker. I think we have fold equity on a 4b squeeze here and AKs plays well enough against their call off ranges as well. I would 4b this to about .42c and get it in if one of them shoves.
