      Hi,
      Is calling preflop ok, or should I 4bet him?
      Should I fold to his cbet on this flop?

      Thanks!

      It's hard to say after only 62 hands with this opponent, although he does seem to enjoy raising a lot. Maybe he's the type of person that re-raises with AQ/AJ/KQ etc.. But without a hit I would've folded too.

      Calling with AK is not a good move,you will only hit your TP one out of three times so you really want to be the aggressor with AK.
      So here I'm either folding or 4betting. By calling here you get yourself into a spot like this:
      If you don't get your TP you will usually have to fold to a bet, if you do get your TP, an opponent with a PP (like JJ or QQ) won't pay you off much since he is afraid from the over cards (He might pay on the flop, but on later streets thinking players will usually fold)

      As played you to fold here, no draws except from the over cards.

      Good Luck!

      Since it is FR I think 4-betting getting all-in is not the best move, because players really don´t 3-bet light being oop and you opened utg
      I think calling 3-bet/playing postflop is reasonable fine play.
