      Given starting positions your default play should be to 4bet and go broke. Calling here with AKo doesnt make too much sense.

      On the flop, what is your purpose of betting? Make a better hand fold? Gain value from worse?

      Keeping your objective in mind, try to come up with a better plan for the hand. Be it checking down or betting more than once.
