A K is my favoured hand, and most of the time i'll go all in. with that monsterhand i win almost every time. But in my last freeroll someone had a low pocked pair sixes. But this time i lost. My point is that it's a bad luck and awefull way to go out
OEPS! I'm your huckleberry... thats JUST my game! five hundred.. must be a......peache of a hand....

Its a good starting hand, but things can change fast. Also depends on your table and your table image as to whether or not some one will call.

i agree.....you have to play every hand based upon the situation......to have favourite or nonfavourite hands may only mess upp your play.....you may fold winning hands and play losing......but off course AK is a good hand.....one of the best......but you cant play them in every situation....

I have to set the record straight. Last week i said that AK is my favoured hand, and that i'll go all in. I meant first of all AK suited. One of the reasons is that it's the hand you can get a royal flush with, (even i never had it). That AA is better is true also and it does not always win though. But exept the battle against AA the reaon for me is that by do go all in, you often eliminate get beaten by a straight or lucky 2pair because the lower kind of hands fold many times. so most chance if you lose is by flush but AK has that advantage too. Altough the game stays poker so ya never know cause pretty much everything is possible. Especcialyif ya have many donkey's at your table or idiots who call with whatever junk they get

AK is the most over rated hand in poker, you hit your ace on the flop and everyone folds but the ones that will bet it say the flop is A 9 J, you can be looking at 2 pair, str draws all hands that will call the big bet you just tossed in. So you end up risking a big bet to win a small pot, but now you have a habd that is real hard to get away from. I am not saying I don't like it but it seems to lose bigger pots the win them but it does win a lot of small pots.

AK is a good drawing hand, even better if suited, but not a hand I would push all in with pre-flop unless I am short stacked, been drawing card dead and need to double up to survive. Playing on a solid table you are liable to come up against AA KK QQ and even lower pocket pairs some of the time, and you are immediately behind 60%-40% or 55%-44% I think. I'd rather make a good sized raise and see where I am before committing all my chips with AK.

My point is that it's a bad luck and awefull way to go out If you push all in it's not that unlikely that you get called by a pocket pair. Then you have only have 47% to win the hand. I cannot really see that much bad luck here. :-)

i think it's better to not call all in bus in pieces, so you can win a higher pot or fold if you don't get good cards

This might just be my opinion but "big slick" is often overplayed by players online that I've seen. It is a huge hand and should be raised or maybe even reraised preflop (depending on the situation). However it's more of a hand you want to see a flop with, like suited connectors. It shouldn't be very upsetting to anyone who loses with AK to any pocket pair. You're already behind before the flop and it's very easy to miss the whole board. The only time I'd say to raise/call all in with AK is if you're short stacked or you're getting value to call someone elses all in (probably because they are short stacked or you already commited yourself to the pot).

The one thing to remember about AK is that it pretty much always has to improve, and this isn't always going to happen unfortunatly. In a tournament situation an all in move will get called by a range of hands by small-medium stacks, and I would say more often than not AK is behind preflop. So why risk your tourny life if it doesnt need too be risked?
