If you go with the approach of flatting and C.O still chooses to 3bet AK, and It goes back to the UTG player, than this is inviting more players post flop with you holding AK? Do you than 4bet or flat?
So I want to understand, what your approach would be in scenarios such as these?
In a turbo or turbo with rebuys (3-8 min blind levels) I may want to be gambling here with AK. It is only behind against AA and KK and a flip with all other pairs, and ahead of a decent amount of other hands AQ, KQ, etc. In a non turbo (say 10-60 min blind levels) tournament, easy fold to the 4 bet shove. even if they have QQ, JJ, or even AQ, do you really need to be gambling for your tournament life pre flop, No.
