      Fold preflop. You are well behind his 3betting range in this combination of positions and your preflop odds are very bad so you can't set mine.

      i agree

      if you think he is upto summit then just play way ahead or way behind and call down if he doest up the betting too much!

      he will want value from his aces so if you play passively or how a set would play esp on a dry board you can get him to put the breaks on and get to showdown. depending on the player of course.

      but you cant go wrong folding pre-flop as at best you are 50/50 before the flop

      i agree his 3bet range has you pretty crushed AK QQ KK AA
      why did you raise his cbet? your never getting any value from AK here and you get called by his better hands, fold pre. as played call cbet and fold to 2nd barrel
