      Hi,


      I don't mind the preflop call provided you know what you're doing postflop. Otherwise 4-bet and call it off.

      As played I'm calling that flop, we're ahead of all the trash he could 3bet light with. That include worse broadway hands as well as random Ax hands, which often will either miss later streets and check/fold, or improve to a top pair which we probably will have outkicked. If he happens to have a pocket pair, we can still outdraw him on the turn and maybe the river without having to pay off another bet since not everybody will bet the turn with 77+ and especially not with 44-22. We have position, we always have the option to turn our AK-high into a pure bluff if the board runs out good to take him off bad pairs and everything, it's highly playable.


      Hope it helps.
