      a bit higher your contibet on the flop, because there are many oppenents and a drawy board

      then it would be a nh

      You should definitly bet on the flop.
      You have TPTK and you were also raiser pre-flop.
      So a conti-bet of 2/3 Pot would of been fine on the flop.

      If I'm not wrong you had almost double stack, which means you should leave the table. However, you don't want to trash AK...

      With 20BB stack pushing flop should be correct play, but due to your big stack, you should bet more for protection, at least 2/3 of the pot but rather potsize.

      Shove on turn is obvious.

      I like to bet pot size on wet board with 2+ chum in the pool, for the simple reason that if one chum calls a smallish bet, the other chum might think he is "priced in" and call as well (they rarely know what they are doing). Not only do you get your money in faster if villian is chasing, the now smaller all-in bet on the turn makes it lucrative for him to chase one more time. As SSSr we want our money all-in by the turn if possible, that way no chum can escape busted draws on the river (and chum just love to draw, however, they only call big river bets when they hit, so it is more profitable for us to make them make an all-in choice before they see the last card)
      I notice you are at 25+BB, most likely waiting to leave the table when this hand pops up.

      I will tell you how I play SSS 25+BB.
      AA KK Raise/go broke
      AK QQ unopen pot: raise fold to preflop shove, only play flop on favorable board (my only move here is fold or all-in, in this hand I would donk the flop and give terrible odds to chase, or you are already beat and going broke anyway)
      AK QQ open pot: call, evaluate flop, fold to preflop raise-behind
      Any PP: limp for set value, fold to aggression
      Any other: RAAAAAAAAAAAG, I fold it

      I am not sure if this is good advice or not, the judges will tell you :D

      AK is a strong hand also with more than 20bb.
      A bigstack with 100bb raises this hand, too!

      contibet could be a bit higher, but overall nh
