Holding AKo in SB facing 4B?

live €1/2 game - 2nd hand after the table started so no reads on anyone at the table except the guy who sits in the cutoff is a regular who usually plays quite solid

UTG+2 (starting stack: €300) opened to €8
Cutoff (starting stack: €500) 3b to €25
Button (starting stack: €150) 4b shoved his entire stack for €150
Me (Starting stack: €300) saw AKo - advice on actions?

What range would you assign for the button shove? How would you factor in potential actions from UTG+2 and cutoff?

My own analysis against the button alone, if he is shoving JJ-AA + AK, then against that range I have 40% equity which would lead to a fold
If we assume he also shoves AQs then it would be an easy call

I don't think call is an option given the stack size so it is either a 5b shove or fold? Would a fold here be too nitty?

Thank you all

I've gotten to the point where I can fold AK there unless I really know something about the players and they love to reraise with 89 or 45 suited. That's true of one guy I know.

Without knowing much about the players, I've got no problem just folding AK to a cold 4bet. Just don't show anyone.

+1.

Many players always complain about how AK is such a difficult hand to play,i always lose with AK, i cant win with AK and all these kind of statements we all know. Well, part of the reason is because these players are missing the nuances and the different contexts are so so important when it comes to how to play AK.

They basically dont know when to push the gas, and when to back away.

Without knowing any of the players it’s a pretty standard fold I think
