      No, easy fold.
      CO bets into 2 opponents. The board could easily have hit him. It could be simply a position bet trying to pick up the pot, but most of the times he has at least a pair.

      +1

      AK is a nice hand preflop. On the flop, you hit nothing. You are against two opponents and the flop is draw heavy. I would jsut c/f. By c/c, you have no information and you do not know how to proceed on the turn since there are many cards which will make you situation even worse.

      b/f would be better than c/c but as I said, flop is draw heavy and might hit one of your opponents, so do not waste any more money.

      when you´re going to check, then c/f is better than c/c.
      You could consider c/r, since co bet is small, so likely he doesn´t have a strong hand, so if you c/r and lead on blank turn I think you get a lot of his hands to fold on the flop or turn.
      But c/f is also ok, you can´t win every pot that you raised pf, especially if you´re oop.
