Flipping against a weak player

Not sure if ill get crucified for this question but here goess..

You know you're playing someone that you know you can and will beat and its only a matter of time before it happens. You'll catch them doin some retarded overbet shuv bluff and stack them cos there an agro fish retard. The only way they stand a chance of beating you is getting into a few preflop wars with you and sucking out.

My question is do you think its OK to fold pre flop even when you know you're hand probably has them dominated?

(EDIT maybe if not fold... try and play more passively preflop like just flat calling 3bets with AK rather than trying to get it in even when you know youre gonna be dominating?)

Say AK vs Ax and that is what 70% equity? You're wining 2.1 times out of 3. Is there a need to gamble when you know youl take his stack anyway? Like especially when 200+bbs deep if ur certain in ur ability against a villain and the only way he will win is by flipping why let him? And especially when he wins hes probably gonna hit n run FK U HNR MFKERS!!! SK A COLD ONE!!!

And yes I am writing this after some bad variance just grinded my way out of a massive downswing crushing everyone i was playin n then today got AK,AJ,99,77 in vs a complete clown with a8o a2 k7o a5 and lost them all when everyday this week ive been crushing the guy without gettin in preflop gambles now hes devastated me with these flips lol

Good answers plz

Folding AK in this situation leaves money on the table.

Just flip it with 70% and feel good.

The only reason to do that is if you're playing at higher stakes than your bankroll allows, witch you shouldn't do. Scared money.

say you buy in for $5 and get to $10 then you go to flip or have a 20% edge so 70% and you're gonna get it in for $20 you're only putting in $5 to win $20 at a 20% edge, regardless of the stake and how many chips are there if you are ahead that much its a snap call unless you've only got like 5-10 bi's then u prob shouldn't be playing
