Default Re: $11 bubble: was AK fold too tight?

I probably push AA-88, AK-AT or KQ-KT here, depending on reads... Folding AK is criminal.

ehhh...actually you dont want a call.
But its still a proftiable push since ure oponent will fold many garbaje and when he does calll at least you will have a very strong hand.

OK, everyone agrees it's a push.

I was playing three bubbles at once and had made a mental note not to push into the big stack here.

Gotta get more detailed with those mental notes [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

If he calls more than 10% of hands (55+,ATo+,A8s+,KQs) this is a fold, assuming you want a +0.5% edge.

All these people saying you want a call with AKo really don't know what they are talking about.

Well, I guess I let the majority vote sway me. Villain is looser than that.

Looks likes it's a pretty close decision, at any rate. That makes me feel better.

Well, they do not want a loose call. Seeing as that loses $EV for you. Yes, it loses it for Villian as well - and gives it all to the two short stacks who are out of the hand.

Obviously I'm not looking for a call with all of those hands. I also appreciate that bubble agression against the big stack is not recommended practice. But this is a low buy in STT, and just sitting back and folding ITM without shooting for first is a far bigger crime than pushing the range above in this spot.

Push. You can get folds here, which makes this a super easy push. You don't want calls, so against a super loose opponent, I might be inclined to make this fold, and it would be good.

But I don't fold without reads here.
