      In zoom ranges are pretty tight and here you have 3 bet a UTG open with AKo which I think is not a good play. You want to keep his utg range as wide as possible since AK doesn't have good equity against his 3 bet calling range( he will fold hands like AJ or KQ to a 3 bet).
      Your post flop play is fine. I am pretty sure he had 99 ,JJ or QQ and I don't think even a triple barrel would have got him off QQ or JJ.

      Hello DucksEatFish,

      Preflop: Being deep we also have to 3bet it bigger.

      As played
      Postflop: Tough to get rid of his hands while he could easily even have such a range which make a set there. CBetting the flop for fold equity + getting a free card for river is still fine.

      Best Regards.
