I won't call this pre-flop reraise. You have to figure that at least one of these guys, although you don't know exactly how many guys you'll be up against, have a pocket pair. Say you go HU, as you did, if he has as low as pocket deuces, you are still slightly behind in a coin-flip around 45% to his 55%. To me that is not a bet I want to take when it means risking 1/3 of my stack. I'm not sure whether the Ev is + or - but I don't like coin-flips. With that being said I would have done the same as you did post-flop, ie. check/fold.

Yeah I'm folding this preflop. The guy re raised for isolation meaning he probably had a pocket pair and the original guy that went all in probably has at least one of your outs.

A few things to note though is both you and the other two involved have an M between 10 and 20, so everyone will be loosening up. You're M is almost below 10. And more importantly, the raise and reraise came from LATE position. If UTG raised and the next player reraised this would be an easy fold with AK. But the CO raised and the button reraised. The button could easily be raising with A10 or KQ thinking he's raising for value. You shouldn't be as concerned about being up against AA or KK here as you should be if a player puts in a big reraise preflop in early position with many many players yet to act. So I like your call preflop, shoving might not be too bad of a play either since just calling leaves you OoP. Postflop I woulda done the same since you missed your hand.

I don't see a call here as even an option. There is no way I'm calling off 1/3 of my stack with AKo in this situation of raise/reraise. I either push or fold PF. And I think we can get away from this PF.

As played, yes, fold to the turn bet.

exactly A/K is the most over rated hand in poker

I don't like the preflop call. Either fold or push. Given there's a preflop reraise i'd be tempted to fold.

this is exactly what i wanted to type, i personally would fold it on the flop, there is no need to push all in pre because you know you will most likely be in a coin flip situation, which is relying ( dont think i spelled that right) on luck which we dont want to do. Definitely fold on flop.
