Was playing a regular danish tournament on stars. Had AK and called a raise to see the flop. Flop showed K and rags. I gave it a bounce and was called after about 5 secs. Gave it another big bounce - enough to take the opponent all-in and was called. He had pocket KK. Did i mess up?? I was sure i had him on QQ max. Has been thinking i might have been too agressive...

I don't like how you played pre-flop, but from the flop onwards you were pretty much destined to go broke.

I dislike both of your calls pre-flop. After a limper I'd have definitely raised to begin with. But once the next guy raises after our call, I think it's a perfect opportunity for a reraise with AK. We're out of position, have fold equity vs. any sort of squeeze, and we want to see 5 cards. Now, clearly it wouldn't have made a difference, but without looking at the results, I think you should have re-raised big PF, enough to put him all-in/otherwise commit both of you and let you see all 5 cards.

Think i hate AK. Had some heavy beatings holding them lately. Been trying limping then betting heavy if hitting or doubting the stomach strenght of opponents. Just doesnt seem like i can get any sort of value out of AK. Last night they got me alot of the stack i lost in the hand above (was chipleader when above hand was played). But then boom - had to play tactical to survive bubble and get into the money. Friggin shit hand. Donkey's are always hit harder than the rest i guess :)

To be fair its quite difficult not to lose all your chips in this hand. I am not saying its impossible - but its very very likely - no matter how you play it.
