      I think after an overcall of the raise, there is a lot of (dead) money in the middle to make this a profitable shove when it reaches you. I would even do this with AKo. What makes this even a clearer shove is the fact that you have less than 50bbs. If you had 100bbs then it would have been a more difficult decision.

      It would also be a closer decision if there was no overcall and you only had to deal with the small reraiser. In that case I would still shove AKs but I wouldn't like doing that with AKo. Perhaps getting very good odds, you could call AKo and go all in when you hit, but that line isn't usually profitable, but maybe this is an exception considering the sizing of the reraise.

      I think BB has AA or KK, so it is not profitable to shove AK. So MP2 raises, and you 3-bet, and OOP (BB) makes a 4-bet. (sqeezzee)
