Hello,

Very soon we will record a new episode of the PokerSchoolOnline Podcast and on the show we will be talking about the topic of 'Playing Better with Ace, King'.

We want to hear your questions about this topic. Do you find it difficult playing the Big Slick? What do you do if you miss the flop holding AK in a multiway pot?

Email your questions to forum@mypokerschoolonline.com and include 'Podcast' in the subject line. If we read your question out on the next show you will win an $11 Sunday Storm ticket!

If you've missed the last episode of the Podcast you can catch-up with it HERE

We look forward to hearing from you!

Hello fellow rounders.

I find AK to be an exceptional hand to bet on turn, if on the unfortunate occurance that it missed the flop. All be it, if there isn't a bet before you to act on the turn. I find in many situations, timidness of others gets you the pot when bet appropriately

I have realized that AK is very strong pre-flop but it diminishes in its strength when the player misses the flop. In the past I have always got married to the hand and ended up losing more money than I should. AK means Big Slick for most players, but for me it is Ann Kourokova. Because it looks great but rarely wins.

My Question is: If I miss the flop, should I C-bet when my opponent has called my pre-flop raise? Does it have a chance of working? Or should I consider checking?

Hi there,
Ok, AK! In my opinion, AK looks pretty good pre-flop but if you miss it post flop it's garbage.
My question is: Would you play AK off suit same as AK suited pre-flop? and Would you just check post flop when you miss it or would you c-bet it?

Best regards,
uzbektosh

AK is very strong pre-flop is a hand that have to raise or re-raise but in pots multiway can be a hand to bring you many problems if you hit.

My Question is : ¿is rentable to call With AhKh when 2 players in front to you re raise all in and the flop is? Jd Ks

Hi Paul,

My question is: "On pre-flop, the A/K are great cards and should be played as such with a 3-5bb. However, how should we play them if a opponent continues to match our bets or re-raise us?"
I have won many times with A/K but have lost many times as well. I believe that we get over confident with these type of cards. Gerald

I usually play AK(o) very strong. AK(s) even stronger as if i had a pair of JJ or even QQ ,even three betting and isolating opp. However my question is, if for some reason i played passive, not three betting a raise, or just calling a family pot. Then the flop comes AAK or KKA, what then? how should i play this if it is check 2 me? check back? what about a bet to me should I re raise?

Thanks guys.
