      the raise preflop should be 4 times the bb
      on the flop you have nothing so without any particular notes on the player i think you should fold

      with the written like this i cant see you have a flush draw :)
      then you hit the A on the turn i see but you have gone all in the flop so if you didnt have a flush draw it was a bad play and you got lucky because you would have hit the A
      i would have called his raise on the flop or push straight away all in
      being 4 people i think the call is the better move

      Hi,

      I´d played it differently.
      AK is good enough hand to get all-in against loose aggressive opponents, but if SB is tight then calling and seeing flop is better.
      Flop: SB lead out into 3 people. That says that he has here QQ+ and he won´t fold to your raise. So it puts you on difficult situation. You have good equity against QQ, but no fold equity. That´s why I like call on the flop and fold turn if I don´t improve (unless SB would bet really small giving me correct odds).
      Other line would be shove. Doubt he´d fold anything, but shove is always better than min-raise. And some players might put you on set.

      Good luck at the tables,
