Hi,

It's fine to 4-bet preflop given your stack size, provided UTG2 is fishy enough to do that with worse, read he isn't some nit that never raises anything and just suddenly min3bet you out of nowhere. Because if that's the case you AK is in deep trouble and being out of position doesn't help at all.

On the flop I don't understand why you check/min-raised him, giving him ~20:1 odds. He can even stick around with a tainted gutshot and own you for that price. Given how much of your stack you already put in just open shove that flop.

Hope it helps.
