Sorry. I will explain better. I just get used to everyone knowing these terms. Your not dumb, you are posting your hand on here trying to see if you played it right, so there is nothing wrong with that.
For what it's worth, I think you played it fine. Different styles make different plays. I just like to be the aggressor, put the other guy in a tough spot.
Ok. His range in this situation , is what he will raise the button in an unopened pot. You can narrow his range down to a certain extent a few ways. Stack size. If he is short stacked then he will probably shove with any two cards that are high, suited or remotely connected. This wasn't the case this time, so does he steal from the button alot ? If he does then his range would be something like, any pocket pair, AK-A7. KQ, KJ, K10, and some other random suited or connected cards.
So you AK stands to be a whole lot better than his range, so I prefer playing back at him and 3 betting, which is when you re raise the initial raiser. As far as I am aware the size of the bet doesn't change the term 3 bet.
Fold equity. Say you shove all in over the top of his raise (Just for example) There is a good chance he will fold, which gives you fold equity, as wel as the fact you have a pretty decent hand anyway.
I await some of the better players pulling me to bits about my explinations
Don't be scared to ask questions. There are some real good players on here, I don't include myself in that. They are more than willing to help.
