      I would 3bet bigger given all the dead money in the pot, plus we are out of position against the 2 players that are still live in the hand. Make it at least $0.25, possibly even $0.3 to make sure you commit everybody that wants to come along, you don't plan on folding that hand anyway.

      Once the BU 4bets his line doesn't really make sense, why would he just call a very small shove with a big hand, knowing that MP2 will likely overcall and that the blinds might come along for the ride too ? Nobody wants a 5-way pot with KK+. Imo you are at worth flipping, at best you have him dominated. With all the dead money already in the pot, you have the nuts with AK in that spot, easy call of the 4bet.

      Hope it helps.
