View Full Version : $11 Stars: AKo meets push early

First round so no reads. 10/20 blinds. Me and villian both have 1500 stacks.

I raise UTG with AKo to 75. Villian in MP goes all in. Is this normally a call or a fold.

auto muck for myself.

Yeh, fold. I'd imagine he has 55 or something. Do you want a coin flip when you already know at least one player sucks? Plus he might have AA and sucks of course.

definitely fold that early.

look at it this way, if you call and lose, you've just lost $11. if you call and win, you definitely have not just gained $11 in equity, even if you double your stack.

Good raise UTG, but after the all-in raise you have to fold here. You don't want a coin-flip this early in the game.
