Default $11: AK Facing overbet on the bubble...

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t150 (4 handed) converter

Hero (t4230)
UTG (t1495)
Button (t4095)
SB (t3680)

Preflop: Hero is BB with A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
UTG calls t150, Button calls t150, <font color="#CC3333">SB raises to t3680</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero??

No real reads on Villain. He hasn't made a play like this yet.

You have a small edge here I think, but no reason to blow most of your stack on it when you have one guy &lt;10BB. Just type "nh" and move on.

Part of AK's strength is the ability to raise strong with it PF and the accompanying fold equity. Not the case in this hand. Here you are either better or you're not. Since you have plenty of BB's to work with I feel comfortable folding here.

Hero folds. With your big stack and the short stack there, I think this is an easy laydown. I'm only calling here with QQ,KK,AA and probably JJ.

Why would you call? He'd have to be pretty terrible to push a hand that you beat here.

1. It's the bubble. Most $11 players are just psyched to have a chance to make some money.

2. The guy hasn't done anything like this yet. So I don't buy the fact that he just sucks and has something like AJs.

Instant call at most levels, especially at the 11's.
