      CO: 27/25
      69% fold vs 3bet (72% CO)
      5k hands

      SB: 21/19
      10% squeeze (8.2% SB)
      52% fold vs 4bet
      5k hands

      BB: 48/1
      141 hands

      Hero (BTN): $86.76 (173.5 bb)
      SB: $67.07 (134.1 bb)
      BB: $229.91 (459.8 bb)
      CO: $21 (42 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K:club: A:club:
      CO raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, SB raises to $6, BB calls $5.50, CO folds, Hero ?

      My idea with the flat was to play with the donkey or back raise if SB squeezes, but both things happen.. should i keep to to then and raise? Even deep against the passive donkey? Also a bit deep with sb... Its bad to just call?

      I agree with your reasoning to flat here and allow BB to come along. This would usually be an easy shove if you were 100bb. At 170bb effective stack sizes vs SB, I don't like 4betting here. I think flatting here with AKs and playing postflop is probably our best option here.
