How do you get away from AK when it's a King high flop?
A terrible thing happened to me last night at my local casino. I'd just won a really big pot for around £250 and was gathering the chips as I got dealt AK. It was a £1sb and £1BB cash game. I raised £10 and got reraised by £40 by this china lady.
I called and the flop came king high with two diamonds on board, there is around £90 in the pot. Now I know the odds
of her having aces when I've got AKo is around 6-1, I cannot bet without really commiting to the hand so I move all in top pair top kicker that's why I've played this hand right? She is really scared and says she thinks i have trip Kings, but she calls and shows her aces.
Turn brings another ace and the river brings a King we both then have full houses but hers is aces over kings mine the opposite. I just cannot see how I can get away from this hand. It has happened twice to me in 3 years but you end up going bust. Please tell me other plays or do I always assume that they have aces? I was gutted and lost the lot. She had a similar stack to mine, not much of a bluffer.
