      Hi alexgrapid!

      Preflop: Raising with AKs is good, villain almoast never folds to 3-bet.

      Flop: On this flop with AKs you flopped your self monster with possible 15 live outs (FD+overcards). As villain is showdown bounded (33% WTSD) I would suggest play hand fast and POT flop and turn your self to maximazi fold equity.

      We may in such situation want to play QQ+ that does not have same way to protect our selves to posible draws that are present on board (FD, OESD, gutshots, BDFD (Backdoor FD)).

      Turn as played: c/c is not an option here unless you want to check-shove your self if he bets.
      But this is not a good/ballanced line as most of the made hands you would bet your self here and not check-raise. Viallin might want to take free cards often and we are no longer able to made him fold on river if we miss.
      With his shove you you need to call $1.82 to win $10, so you need 18% equity.

      Considering his range to 55, 66, TT, 56s, 76s, 78s, 98s, T9s, TJs, TQs, TKs, ATs, 68s, 69s, your equity is 48% and with shove turn your self even if he calls you light with single pair hands + gutshots.

      As he played note him what he had and how he played it. It is intresteing information that vialling might be able to stack off with MP without gutshot or BDFD.

      Best regards
