Over the last couple of days I have been getting in trouble with AK. I have been running into situations recently where I am calling big raises or all in preflop with AK. What worries me is that I don’t think enough before calling, I just call. I used to take pride in my ability to fold AK in certain situations. For some reason I can’t find the fold button. Of course the situations where calling with AK or reraising all in with AK is the correct move (short stack, etc), I seem to still be playing correctly. It’s those situations when a normal player thinks my AK is probably not good here, that I am messing up right now.
Just as a reminder to myself.
I CAN EASILY FOLD AK.

It’s a well run league, there are 9 people that run it and at each tourney they all have a responsibility. One person runs the software, one runs the buy in, one records the knockouts paper and some one else does the chip ups during the breaks. They are all considered dealers so you never have to deal. You sit down and this person deals for the table the whole time, which works well when you have tournaments beside holdem. I love that they do this and I am sure it makes it easier to run the league, I hate running a tourney myself, I always feel rushed at the beginning and like everyone else is just sitting around waiting for me. Which they usually are.
The first tournament (Holdem) had about 40 people but I missed the tourney. The second event was an Omaha tourney had 29 runners and I was able to make the final table, money and earn bonus league points. We will see how Stud goes as I am trying to quickly read up on some strategy. Our next tourney in 2 weeks is the Stud Major, so I need to get up to speed fairly quick.

I still dance a fine line when dealing with M and the end of tourneys. When I first read Harrington on Holdem, it took awhile for me to correctly play his strategy when your M is 10 or less (basically I played poorly for several tourneys). Eventually I had deeper thoughts on M...but I deleted all my old posts.
