      You have a lot AK's :P .

      Preflop you should always 3bet this one. You're postflop OOP with no initiative and this you don't want. In this case check/fold was my play on the flop.

      Hello jetocumen,

      Preflop: As I have said, AKo ain't a great hand to play in multiway pot, rather squeeze or just fold the hand and especially being OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you donk into multiway pot?

      Best Regards.

      Guess i should have 3 bet pre-flop and folded at the flop. My continuation bet was not good because there might be a flush draw on the board.
