      $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($8.96)
      UTG+1 ($6.15)
      Hero (CO) ($5.28)
      BTN ($5.93)
      SB ($10.83)
      BB ($8.23)

      Pre-flop: ($0.07, 6 players) Hero is CO A:club: K:diamond:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.60, 1 fold, SB calls $0.58, BB calls $0.55, UTG+1 raises to $1.80, Hero folds, SB folds, BB calls $1.20

      Flop: A:diamond: 5:diamond: 2:diamond: ($4.80, 2 players)
      BB checks, UTG+1 bets $2.90, BB folds

      Final Pot: $4.80

      UTG+1 wins $7.50 ( won +$2.80 )
      Hero lost -$0.60
      SB lost -$0.60
      BB lost -$1.80

      Is Ak here a profitable preflop call, or should i call in such situations only with AA and KK? The aggressor seems fishy but there were to players to act after me so what's the best move?

      I fold this too.

      You can't just call because of the two players behind you. You won't give them good odds to call for set value.

      So the only options you have is push or fold.

      Push: Isn't good because UTG+1 shows much strength with his 4bet after a 3bet and 2 oop cold caller. So your best possible chance here is to get into a flip. But most likely one of them is going to hold KK/AA.

      So I think fold is the correct action here.
