The best thing about  big slick is not having to hit I love playing it with 1 raise in front of me and folds all round I then force a showdown preflop so I know what card I have to miss as nost people online see an A and fall in love I get called flat out by A5 A6 o/s

AK good but beatable

Postby Deace1973 » Thu Jan 05, 2006 1:30 am

Now I like AK as much as the next person but I cant undestand the obsession that people have with going all in. I think that is especially true when there has been a substantial raise before it.

The first raise will get rid of the rags then if you hit either card on the board you are in a strong position with only pk AA or KK to worry you and you would have gone down to them anyway.

If you dont hit you can get out of the pot and fight another time.

man, the other night I started a freeroll and had to leave for a half hour.  When I got back I had $1200 and the big stacks had about $3-4K.  Everyhand was raised like $500 bucks.  I could only get in 2 hands in the next half hour and they were both big slick.  I had to get in for over $500 both times.  I didn't hit on the first one and hit AK on the second.  Wouldn't you know it, I was against AA.  Oh well.

Excellent post.  Nothing to add to it really other than I'm a tight player.  If no one has raised when it gets to me I will put in a nice raise with AK.  I will most of the time get a heads up on it.  If I hit either one on the flop and there is ver little str8 or flush possibilities, then most if not all of my chips are going into the pot.  If I play it like that I rarely lose with it.

Personally, I find that AK or big slick is one of the MOST misplayed hands in poker today. People seem to think they're invincible when they hold it and ignore warning signs telling them that they're beat when the flop, turn and river hit. It is a powerful hand, don't get me wrong, but you've still got to be aware of the circumstances of that particular pot or hand, and avoid making mistakes with that hand which will cost you a lot of money.
