      Hi Urmo,

      Since BTN and BB have high 3-bet and SB may be a midstack I would opt for a call here.

      Worse case scenario we get to play a multiway pot , with a fish, and a great hand (and most likely with position). So it can't be too bad with AKs here.

      As played I'd bet/fold that turn. We still have some FE vs pairs that call flop.
