AK is absolutely not a limping hand, everyone above who said it's alright is wrong
OK.. so, the RULE is, according to you, that it is wrong to play AK slowly?
Why? If I have had them a couple of times and raised them during a tourney, why shouldn't I mix it up a bit to throw players off the scent a bit?
Also, like Bluffyou123 and a few others said, AK can cripple you or see you off if they don't hit.
Again comes down to what table is like, and how you and others have been playing.
Personally AK is just high card and I play it cautiously, but I don't see why there should be a set
way to play them!
