      well, I believe 120 hands is not a sample at all... However, he definatelly shows strenght here... but he could do it with AK. Anyway, I know for sure that I`ve never folded AK pre-flop after I raised it.

      120 hands is nothing and we also don´t know his VPIP. With AKs you´re only behind AA and KK, against every other hand you at least have coinflip. According to the strategy its an All-In here. He might do it with AK, TT, JJ here as well.

      If his VPIP is very low as well, a fold is ok here, since he is raising against an UTG raiser and had to put you on a strong hand.
