      Realise in hindsight that flatting the 3-bet was a mistake, ought to have been 4-bet or fold, but I was too scared of the number of players to 4-bet and too attached to fold.

      Of more interest though is the turn decision. I snap-folded to the min raise but wondered afterwards if that was a mistake. I'm not in that bad shape actually against AQ. But i suppose AQ is best end of his range?

      Consider all the dead money I think it is better to shove pf, but if you don´t want to play for stacks, then call is also fine.
      Don´t know why you bet out on the turn. I´d prefer c/c again small bet on MP2

      Pre-flop I suppose I felt AK was too weak to play for stacks against the 3-bet and potentially a slow-played premium amongst one of the other two players. Monsters in the wardrobe! But then I've never been the biggest fan of AKo.

      I think I bet the turn as a semi-bluff, trying to rep an AA or KK that slow-played the flop. But in hindsight it does look a rather ridiculous line when like you say check/calling a second small bet offered a much better prospect of making a hand.

      Cheers!
