      Hello, My main question is what to do when you caught right in the middle with AK, If it was just me and the 3bettor i will definitely 4bet but what to do if someone else called?
      I dont think i can fold since if i called the 3bet, it would be bad to fold when you hit TPTK
      MP1 is basically a fish
      MP3 just came in and have 17% 3bet out of 22 hands.

      Please advice
      Thank you.

      - I would not really give coldcaller too much credit, so I´d cosnider him dead money. If you would 4-bet/call shove with AK against 3-bettor then I would also prefer 4-bet to 8$ to force out MP1 and MP3 might also fold smt like TT/JJ, since it looks really strong

      I think you can´t fold and I like your c/rai on the flop. If he ever 3-bet with KQ he would not really b/f that spot
