      Why would SB lead out if he has AK? Since he's a TAG and probably a regular too, he should know that UTG+1's range is tight in this spot so a flop check to re-raise is something I see a lot of poker players doing with a flopped straight.

      With this in mind, I don't believe he flopped a straight so I wouldn't fold here.

      Preflop we could also squeeze here to attack the dead money in the pot.

      Postflop: if we are planning to play our hand why not raise for value/protection?

      I can see SB donking AQ, KQ, QJ, JT, QT, QQ, JJ, TT and the occasional AK.
