Hi yeeehaaah!

What I'm going to do here depends on the type of tourney, so please list where the hand comes from, as that can have dramatically different answers.

If this is a standard freeroll (non-league game), then with AK, I get a raise, call and shove. I'm going to re-shove here in order to isolate the player that bet 2565. I don't want to call here and invite others into the pot, as AK plays much better against only one opponent. I want to put the pressure on the opps to have to call my bet, not to have the pressure on me to call a bet of theirs.

If this is a league game, where I can get a negative point total if I bust... it's an instant fold without a premium made hand. I'll re-shove with AA, KK and possibly QQ, but nothing else.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
