      Nah, with this move you will get called only by AA,KK, vs which you are obviously behind. Against aggressive opponents shoving AK might be profitable though.

      Shoving is fine, unlikely that player holds KK or AA; since you have A and K.
      So mostly you´re flipping here+ since you have fold equity against TT, JJ, maybe even QQ- then shoving is fine.

      But since you´re 130BB deep then I rather prefer calling ip and play fit or fold game postflop.
