My fold is probably too tight.

AKos Against an 8% overall 3b range on the button you have 52% equity. Have a look at a top 8% hand range so you are familiar with what range you are up against. This equity is usually quite easy to obtain if an A or K flops So folding is too tight for me. You can flat or 4bet it's a matter of taste. The good thing about 4 betting is that you can't just 4 bet aces and kings as you go up the stakes or you get no action. 4 betting AK adds 16 extra combos to the 12 combos of AA KK so you will get more action. So if you're intending to move up you may as well start to incorporate it.
Here you have blockers to AA KK so it's actually much more likely you are up against 60+ combos of 77-QQ and other Ax. Than the 6 combos of AA KK that are left.
