Hi all!

I'm new in this... Playing 2.5$ Hypers.

In very first hand vs unknown opponent, I faced an open jam all in 25 BBs. My hand was AKo. Call or Fold?

Thanks,

RomanPF

I think you will find after

I think you will find after many games that first hand population mostly open jams weaker Ax hands (that you got them crashed)  and some low pairs (which you are flipping)..I think AK is too  strong of a hand to be folded 25bbs especially at those stakes!!

Hope it helps.

Most of the time you'll see

Most of the time you'll see players jam 22,33,44 Vs those hands AKo is close to a break even call. Although alot of recs will jam with Medium to higher Ax type hands. If that is the case, its a very easy call.. If not, its a coin flip. ( AKs is a clear call)
