      Hey Nipbourne,

      It's a good idea to be careful about raising vs EP open with AKo. This includes squeezing. While squeezing will likely be profitable here as a result of dead money it will likely be a better option to flat and play multi-way in position. Another option is to squeeze smaller perhaps $0.80 to encourage MP1 to call with a wider range. With the current sizing, if unknown MP1 calls, there is a decent chance AKo is behind his range, which may lead to difficult postflop situations.

      Given the above, it may be better not to cbet the flop, but instead check-back and hope to spike an Ace or King. As played it's an easy fold to shove.
