$200 NLHE Full Ring: How do I play AK in this spot?
Live game. Eff 150ish and all players cover me.
AKo in the BB.UTG +2 raises to 8$. He had been open raising quite a bit with a real wide range and folding to pressure. Another random lady calls. Cutoff raises to 30$. He was a bully so to speak but not a dangerous one seemed more like he was raising cuz he read somewhere you should be "aggressive" in low stakes game. (This via observation and table talk) Button calls. Very tight older gentlemen.SB calls, he had worked up a big stack with a combination of running ok and playing boldly in some spots.
When bully raised i intended to reraise him all in giving him 1.7 odds
to call with lots of his crap. Button and SB foiled my plans here though. Is this a good approach to playing in this spot? How about reshipping all in?
I just overcalled everybody with 3.5 to 1 odds and missed the flop.
Comments on this type of situation?
Also I was suuuuuuper card dead the whole time. What do you do in those spots? Just ride it out? Make a play, bluff raise? It always seems like i am card dead get a very strong hand and bust with it as in its not my night. What do you guys do in extreme card deadness?
