AKo blind steal, get reraised. what to do. $55
 
25/50 level

Folded to me on the button, I raise to 175, SB reraises to 500, I push

I have about 1800 chips
Villian has about 1000
8 people left

Like? no like?

I like.

Not that it matters, but I think is a value raise, not a steal. I want someone to play with me.

I mainly play $33's but I see so many hands of bad pushes even early I like my AK here. It def wins more than loses only debate is it worth getting all in this early? Well in my eyes you will still have 800 chips and to me AK well worth the possible coin toss here. You are by no means crippled if you lose. You obviously do not call his reraise so either push or fold and I am not folding here.

I think the coinflip scenario is less likely than normal early big pot vs. random donk scenarios, simply because HERO is on the button. He could easily be facing AQ-AT & KQ here.

think about it this way....how many times will you reraise with a hand like aj in the sb's spot?

What are you saying? That it happens a lot, or very little?

I'll answer your question with another question...

Is Empire Poker rigged?

Sponger shows [ 5c, Ah ] a flush, eight high.
Other Guy shows [ 5d, Ac ] a flush, ace high.
Other Guy wins 5840 chips from the main pot with a flush, ace high with ace kicker.

Seriously though, I guess this was pretty standard. My mind has become warped by not playing much poker lately...

This was in retrospect a stupid OP

Villian called w/ 99. I won.
