Fold, and then call yourself an idiot for folding. Then quit poker.

I think its an easy call regardless of the blind being 100-150...very easy. At almost all levels your opponent is way too likely to have AJ, AQ etc, and you have 10x BB.

I think you're wrong about 50/100 blinds. It's just +0.1 if UTG is pushing 88+, AJ+.

really now...its possible. Good thing that scenarios where folding AK like this is correct with 10x bb are very rare. Also .1% isnt so bad and I bet its not so clear that more will be looser than tighter. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Whats with all the folding AK and 88 posts lately?

I know there ARE spots too...but it seems that most the posts have been far from 'interesting' ... in terms of situations I mean...

Then again I'm sure my posts are obvious and simple to good players - so I should just be quiet and let every question have its day in the helpful sunlight.

Why are you asking questions where the answer is obvious

Your reason sucks. Merry Christmas.

Why does my reason suck? Oh, and never post in one of my threads again.

I'm ignoring your request. I'm sure you'll get over it like a big boy.

Your reason sucks because you're letting running bad affect your decision-making. This is so incredibly standard that it shouldn't even be crossing your mind to fold. You should snap your wrist in 2 with the speed of moving the mouse to the call button. The fact you're getting owned by Party Poker's RNG is regrettable, but it doesn't excuse crappy play.
