Thursday, May 15, 2008 would you play this?

So I'm playing a lot of 2table $2 SNGs and doing fairly well. Bubble had burst and I'm second in chips. The chip leader and bully raises once again and I hold AK. Based on the stack sizes of the very tight opponents and their respective stack sizes vs the blinds, would the correct play to have fold in this position? Essentially, I've just began to learn about ICM and have no idea how to go about figuring this out.

Thanks for your help!




  1. I either push preflop or re-raise enough to commit myself with any further betting. Although if I were to just flat call, I probably check-raise there, or maybe OBFV.

    Either way, there's no way I'm not trying to get all my chips in the middle there.

  2. Immediately after i made the push, my exact thoughts were, "Dubs - you're a dumbass."

    Post-flop, would a small reraise to see how he reacts been appropriate? That would still leave me with 2x the 3rd place stack.
