      Hey 101aj,

      Nice hand. Without a read I wouldn't fold AK against a limp/raise. It's a fishy line and fish do this with all kinds of worse hands but monsters alone. I would play like you did and make a note for future reference.

      Considering you have a bigger stack and villain minraised you could call the raise preflop and play postflop in position, but all-in as played is also easy and effective.

      Best regards,
