I think that $0.25 in Spin&Go most the time is bingo game, so considering that you are in HU with AK and with a K on flop I prefer shove at flop and dont let him/her see cheap the other streets to catch some good hand like in this case he/she catched.

Stop being results oriented. Would you be posting this hand had you won the pot? Dont doubt yourself...stacking off with top top in the micros is the correct play all day everyday - you should be playing stakes you are well bank rolled for and folding a hand as strong as AK when we flop a K is just madness at these levels. You were a pretty sizable favorite on the flop, it just didnt work out for you. That is ok - take a note on the guy, move on!
Your preflop raise was to small, and you flop bet was also to small. Other than that everything is fine. You are not folding TPTK on the flop in a raised heads-up pot, when the hand start with 21BB effective. If he can beat that, or if he get there later, good for him. In this case you were ahead, when the chips went in, and then there is really not any reason to think, you should have folded.
