No, I'm not refering to Alaska here, but rather Ace King. I think that pair of cards is the most overrated in poker. I never have much luck with them. Tonight was a good example. In tournament 11 of my 100 Sit and Go Project I had a fairly good stack as we approached the bubble. I picked up AK, and then one of the short stacks decided to go all in. I called him, but it cost a lot of my stack to do so, on top of the chips that I'd already put in. Another player called him as well. The flop came, and it was a complete miss. Into the muck goes AK, and I was way down, and starting to look like I might not make the bubble. Meanwhile, all in player caught a hand and won a lot of chips. Ironically a few hands later he went all in again with his much larger stack, only to be called by a player who had him covered. He lost, and only one more player had to go out to for the remainder to reach the money. Fortunately I had more than the short stack, and made the money when he was all inned by the blinds. I ended up going out in 12th place, winning 50 cents.
