      If you were 100bb deep and you used smaller bet sizing I think you should fold.

      Given that villain is a little short and both your 3bet size and flop cbet size is so large, I think you might be committed here.

      Generally passive players are going to have a strong range comprising flushes, two pairs and sets, and the occasional A:hX when they shove here. Maybe he could have KJ/KQ sometimes, when stacks get shallower and if that's the case you can never fold AK here.

      But imagine if you were deeper - The likelihood of villain shoving KJ/KQ falls dramatically. But then again it really depends on whether the fish is a bad/aggro fish or a passive one.
