      He was playing 10/8/0 (vpp/pfr/3b) through 120 hands. Is there any way I could muck my AK when he 3b. Also should I just flat his 3b and play postflop.

      Even with just 120 hands, 10/8/0 is super strong when he 3B.
      I think Fold where you are IP would be a bit weak. So flat call and being very cautious is the way to play imo.

      I tend to respect a 3-bet value of 1.... (although it's only 120 hands).
      A tendency is visible 10/8.
      You are often against KK+ solely.
      => Fold against him preflop is possible but it feels so weak/nitty.
      BUT keep in mind, that flatting his 3-bet
      Even if he does it with QQ, AK which I doubt because he is oop you are only flipping.

      Best regards,

      I wouldn´t really turn AKs there bluff and 4-bet him where you can´t really fold very often when he shoves, since he may do that with AK or QQ sometimes but very often you´re against KK, AA
      I think a lot better option is just call pf and play ip.
      And then likely call him down if you hit your tptk
