      Pre-Flop: ($0.75, 8 players) Hero is CO K:diamond: A:heart:
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.50, 1 fold, Hero raises to $2.50, 1 fold, SB calls $2.25, 1 fold, MP1 calls $2

      Flop: 10:spade: Q:spade: J:spade: ($8, 3 players)
      SB checks, MP1 bets $0.50, Hero raises to $7, SB calls $7, MP1 goes all-in $39.95, Hero ???

      The problem here is that if I'm against the flush I have no outs.

      Difficult situation
      Pot is huge, there are dead money from SB and you´re playing against players who might easily get all-in with two pair or lower straights. So for that reason I like call instead of folding.
      Against some passive players who would always c/c or b/c flop with worse hands than yours folding AK is better than calling.
