      In a BU vs SB fight i think i would go broke with AKs preflop, even against a tighter villain, but flatcall 3bet in position is also a good option here.
      It's maybe the worst possible flop you could get, without any specific read i would checkbehind flop, and check/fold turn/river unimproved.

      He is not that tight, so I´d prefer 4-betting that spot and then calling shove to balance out my 4-bet bluffing range
      Postflop I´d take one stab and then check it down. he is mostly giving up there, but if we check back, then he might easily bet his AK/AQ (especially if he picks up flushdraw) and we would fold to his turn bet ui.
