      I understand why you are trying to be careful with your increased 32BB stack but if you arent willing to commit your stack with a hand like AKo preflop with 32BB you shouldnt play it imho.

      You should 4bet(push) and be happy you got your money in.

      You don't hit often enough (implieds like setmining) to make this call profitable, just jam it and see 5 cards instead of 3cards-> miss and probably will fold to a cBet or sth like that

      Despite previous comments, I'd agree 100% with taifoon on this call. On my experience, pushing AK against any pair before flop is 2/3 to 3/4 frustration if being called, despite any supposed odds. And if SB reraises raise from UTG, he probably has something...
