      Hello Slimijs,

      Preflop: Sometimes it's even close to 3bet here if the opponent is more kinda nitty and doesn't raise a lot from UTG. I might then even consider just folding or Calling and trying to play postflop. Although Calling is somewhat bad since we will be OOP but since we have the suited AK it could be possible. But definitely 3betting is fine.
      Postflop: Postflop I guess there is not much to do, although I expect him to often times have a pretty strong hand there against we are since he is potting the flop. Maybe even 2pairs, sets, or pair+draw or something similar. According to the opponent I act accordingly.

      Best regards.
