      He MeAmor22,

      It's a good idea to be careful 3betting AK vs early position openers. Very often the best option is to flat rather than 3bet. The reason is that if your opponent responds very tightly to 3bets he will fold a large % of the time, only continuing with hands that AK doesn't have that much equity against. If you are going to 3bet I recommend a smaller sizing to encourage your opponent to continue with the weaker hands in his range.

      When you get shoved on, you have to call because it isn't that much extra in chips and you likely have enough equity vs your opponents range.
