      If you don't want to shove it against a min4bet from UTG, which is probably not a good idea anyway if UTG is on the tight side, you should probably just fold it and forget about it, AK isn't the nuts against everybody, less variance is good too when you're not confident you have good equity against his range.

      Calling is also possible because it is suited, the price is good and you have position, so you can sometimes cooler him or take it away with position when he doesn't c-bet ugly boards. It does require you being comfortable reading his range postflop tho.

      Hope it helps.
