just realize ... there are 4 rounds of betting. you are trying to get a litttle bit of information each round. if you have AK, and your opponent has 72 and shoves ... he still has a 40 % chance of hitting a pair. so even though your Monster AK looks really good ... it might be waaay behind. Look into how your opponent bets. Pay close attention. Dont try to end the hand before it even begins. See what your options are, and then attack if the odds
are in your favor.
Also, a pair is good ... but your 10 kicker stinks. I used to play hands like Q4 and the flop would be QQ7 ... but i would ALWAYS lose to a QJ.
