I can't see a call here either, and a fold isn't even an option. I'm pushing and expecting him to fold.

I push and expect him to call with 33-66. This always, ALWAYS happens against a low pair. Swear it.

His range is pretty big here. Push!

easy push - I like playing AK all in anyways - it IS a great hand, in theory, but only if it sees all 5 cards -

the hands you could be called with here - too varied to mention - I think you'll be dominating to 3 outs, but that's just me...

yea I push here.. I mean you're definitely going to re-raise him, and any significant re-raise puts in over half your stack so might as well just push it, lots of money in the pot already with his large raise and the blinds/antes.

Indicate the fact that you are raising all in with a backhanded waving of the hands, then take a sip of water while leaning back.

I think if you push he can put you on lesser hands and his calling range will be expanded. If you call that would around suspicion plus you might miss.

Uh...what?

I apologize, English was never my strong suit. Let me try to better explain myself.

If I try to steal from the button, let's say for the sake of argument, and the BB goes all in on an apparent re-steal, do you necessarily put him on only a premium hand? I know I don't. I would put him on a better hand if I see him flat call (or min-raise/do something fancy) rather than resteal all-in. Therefore, I think it may be +cEV to push here rather than so a fancy non-all-in re-raise or flat call. Did I explain myself clearer or should I try again?

Alright, I've heard enough from people telling me it's an easy push. I figured it was too, and I instapushed from the bb and even faster than that, he called me with 55 and won the race.

The main reason I posted this is wanting to see if anyone does not want to race for this many chips, either against a small pair or against something else. I think his over-raise limits my options.

yep. easy push. you're way ahead of his current range, and you're about a coinflip with his calling range.. so it's slightly profitabe even if you are called everytime, and since you do have good FE being one of th eonly stacks that can [censored] him up.

Yeah, AK is a drawing hand. Don't want to take risks with a hand like that. [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
