I tend to think that AK has a lot of possibilities next to the strong pair KK sitting stressed until the river, lest an ace pop up. AK is a variable and KK is just a very good hand,with none of them you have no preflop guarantee😀. Play them both sparingly and may they be useful.

KK is certainly much stronger and more profitable than AK.

I would choose a pair of kings. This is a ready pair, and in my opinion, this hand gives us a better chance. But this is about playing preflop. A ready-made pair is a ready-made combination, everything is simple here :)

I prefer to play with a pair in my hands (КК) when it comes to preflop

I will play both equally as it can go either way.
Nothing is guaranteed in this game.
2,2 can just as easily beat K,K as A,K.
A bit more reluctant to play 2,2 though.

KK always. It just has better odds. If an opponent hits an ace so be it.
AK vs QQ would be a different question though, but I'll still most likely go with a "made pair".

KK will be much stronger between these hands. I choose this hand and go all the way. If he gets A, he's lucky, there's nothing he can do about it, but my chances with KK will be big AK you need to see the flop and see your card A then it becomes strong I think many people understand this between a ready-made pair and just 2 high cards you need to choose a pair

I think we must take KK if we have a choice

AK vs KK is something about 30% vs 70% in heads up...

Doyle Brunson used to say he preferred AK to aces because it is easier to get away from. Not sure if I agree.

Hello everyone. I prefer KK. This hand is much better because it's already a ready-made combination.

I'll take the 69.881% equity KK has vs AKo any day.


I'd even take my 65.895% equity with KK vs AK suited

It is a difficult decision, but I will choose KK because in a direct fight with AK, the chances of winning are much higher.

Of course I will choose KK, in the long run this hand will bring much more profit than AK
