      how should i have played it? fold pre because there's still another player to act?
      4-bet shove?
      call and see the flop like i did?
      when he 3bet i thought he might just be squeezing but then he shoved flop

      i generally never know how to play AK. getting it in pre seems like im hardly ever ahead.. best to hope for is flipping vs QQ or AK
