Default *Official* Big Slick Thread

Okay, here's the idea. I'm a little confused on playing AK and I'm sure many others are too. So, this thread will (hopefully) consist of multiple AK hands, and comments on them.

To post a new hand, re-title your post "(Your name) #(number)". For example, my third hand posted in this thread would be "Jman28 #3". Please post some of your thoughts with the hand, and then we can all critique the hands together.

Make sure that you reply to the correct post when giving your thoughts.

This may get really confusing, or it may evolve into a discussion on AK or maybe no one will respond.

Worth a shot though, right? I'll start it off below.

This is a $100+9 hand. I had no reads on the villian.

I'm most concerned with my turn check. I think that my river call is almost automatic after it. I always am afraid to get involved with a big pot when a 3-flush hits.

Comments on all streets welcome.

Yep, that's the question. I bet that turn most of the time when I don't have a flush card in my hand. I would be more likely to check if I had one. Coming from a limit background, I have a strong aversion to not betting a scare card like this.

Definitely. If I check that turn, I pretty much plan on calling any bet.

I know you aren't actually looking for advice here, but I would raise more preflop. Your opponents are giving up a lot by calling the larger raise, which they often will do.

Hehe, ok ok so it has a hint of shameless bragging in it. You had impeccable timing in your post. But ya, i do want to see if this is the line most people take with AK early on. I am usually raising AKs and AKo from any position and betting any flop when HU, and it works pretty well.

Late tourney I usually call all-ins with it from most positions as people push Ax so often late.

How much would you raise this PF? Blinds are only 10/15 here...I made it over 3BB's already.

I prefer an overbet on that flop. 375 or so. I do not want clubs in there.

I like to usually make it 70-90. When you raise to 50, too many small PPs can call you and hit their sets, which makes it tough to know when your TPTK is good.

wow...6BB's??? Are you having luck with people calling you or do you usually just take down the blinds? I'm not trying to blind steal here...

Overbet or nonoverbet, if he is going to call you chasing the flush, the villian is not getting odds either way. This way the pot is smaller if he hits his flush
