      Hello xJCzZ,

      Preflop: Against some fish or aggressive squeezer, you could even consider 3betting because playing AKs OOP is kinda hard if you hit your A or K but ain't saying that Calling is wrong if you expect to get value.
      Flop: I don't really like the donk out in 3bet pot, more often I would just prefer to Check/Fold, o course we have to find ways to make such Calls profitable but donking against unknown, I don't like it.

      Best regards.
