AKs 4B pot BB
Hey guys, just wanted to get some sort of feedback on this hand. Personally I think I played it ok, but I could be horribly horribly wrong, because i do suck.
I have come to really dislike getting it in preflop w/ AKs at these stakes (with the exceptions of vs players with stats like 60/30 and 85/40 etc.) because most other regs and even recreational players rarely seem to get it all in with worse than QQ. This means the range I am facing most of the time is QQ+ and AKo/AKs which kind of sucks because I'm flipping at best and far behind the rest of the time.
At this point villain is 26/18 over 65 hands, seemed like a fairly standard TAG from what I had seen. When he makes the tiny 4B I feel he does so because he wants to tempt us to shove which makes me think he most certainly has AA or KK here. Because the bet is so small I call because of pot odds, hoping to flop something like hearts, 2 pair etc. When the flop comes out I'm flipping vs AA and KK and the only hands that I'm actually losing to are QQ and TT which seem less likely in this spot.
PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
Hero (BB): $5.78
SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.05
Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has A K
fold, fold, CO raises to $0.20, BTN calls $0.20, SB calls $0.18, Hero raises to $1.00, CO raises to $1.80, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.80
Flop: ($4.00, 2 players) 6 Q T
Hero bets $3.98 and is all-in, CO calls $3.98
Turn: ($11.96, 2 players) T
River: ($11.96, 2 players) 8
Hero shows A K (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 46%, Flop 34%, Turn 2%)
CO shows Q Q (Full House, Queens full of Tens) (Pre 54%, Flop 66%, Turn 98%)
CO wins $11.46
Anyway, sorry for the long explanation, just wanted to go through my thought process in the hand as I want it to be critiqued as I'm sure there are things I'm approaching in the wrong way/overlooking.
Any advice is welcome, thanks guys.
