I don't mind seeing AK here - I'd be happy to see anything but JJ+ when I call. You're CL but first place is still some way away, gotta keep moving forward. TT has 50% vs a range of (77+, AQ+) and you're getting ~35% pot odds
. Good call.
If villain had 1,200 more chips I would evaluate my edge and fold if the table was weak enough to allow me to chip up without showdown. I've been on such tables and made such laydowns before - you're accumulating anyway, a bust would leave you crippled, why race?
As an aside, it's also worth considering the effect on your table image if you raise 4 hands in a row then shut down as soon as someone plays back at you.
