      Well as played it's okay i guess, but a very lose table with 3 huge fish would likely be my argument for raising AKs preflop, it crushes their ranges and the more money goes in preflop the easier it is to stack one of them as long as we hit something.

      Being out of position isn't that big of a concern. Either you hit something and you bet it until you're all-in, or you don't and you give up since they're most likely rarely ever folding to a bet.

      Hope it helps.
