      Hi,


      If you don't mind the variance it's rarely a mistake to play AKs that way preflop, and given what happens you can see why, you probably made these guys fold medium to high pocket pairs, maybe another AK for CO, by representing KK+ with your AK.

      Folding it is also fine, CO's stats are decent unless you notice he has a huge 3bet%, and BB seems like a tight guy himself so his coldcall should signify a strong hand too.


      Hope it helps.
