Hello everyone!
This is my first comment here.
Well, today I had some difficulty on this hand. The villain was UTG+1 and he is a 10/4 after 750 hands, so a very tight player. I was in middle position with AKo and he raised all-in to 38 bbs.
I thought he had a monster.

Maybe he was multi tabling and miss clicked? Saying that sometimes when you have loads of hands on someone they show a hand down and they have..... raise UTG with 94o or something stupid. One of them well I wasn't expecting that moments

I think it's a mis-click or a tilt-shove. You don't say if this was a Zoom table, or if the player was multitabling, so it's a bit of a mystery. Against a player with stats of 10/4 over a sample of that size, I would usually fold AK, as you're flipping at best. If he'd just made a standard raise, then calling would be best, with the aim being to try and out-flop his QQ/JJ. Even folding wouldn't be a bad option, as you're unlikely to win a big pot even when you hit.

Hope this helps!
Cheers,
Arty

Thank you for your comments guy!
I was at a standard table at NL2 9-max.
I don't remember if it was at this hand but I think he had a bad beat the previous hand with AA.
I was putting him at a QQ+ and AQs range, but that move didn't make sense, because if he wanted to get value from the hand he rise big, rather then go all-in. I called, but on a normal situation I think I had fold like 80% of times, cause a raise all-in UTG from a 10/4 is usually a monster.
