      Why would you raise this flop? He has 10% equity or less so you really don't have to be worried about getting sucked out. If he has QQ+ the money is going in at some point anyway, but you lose a ton of value against his bluffs so call the flop, call or check the turn and hope he bluffs the river or to hits a pair with AK to get another bet out of him.

      consider his bet size I think he would b/f quite often and although he might not put more more money in his AK you would still give him option to catch up and then getting his stack. So I would also prefer call, since board is so dry and you have position
