It boils down to this question:

If you are better than most of the players at your table: FOLD
If you are the worst player at the table, then I would CALL
What do I know, I don't even have 100 posts...
This is totally incorrect, the only considerations should be pot odds
and equity vs. their range, no one has a skill advantage big enough to pass up +EV calls in a tournament with half the field still left.
As for the hand itself, AK and 20 BBs is a super fist-pump shove.
