NL5 PF line check

Is this a fold PF? 3 betting into a raiser and a caller looks really strong to me but I find it hard to lay down AKs here.

I realize I posted this in the full ring thread. Forgive me!

    Call is perfectly fine. Even a tight player probably has AQ+ JJ+ which you are not far behind.

    that's a 4bet your AKs has nice equity but playing it behind you gonna hit it like 1.2 each 3 times. so is not ev+ to call there, either better to 4bet cbet flop or fold pre.

    you are going to get 3bet a lot vs AQ AJs ATs KJs KQs so you have nice fold equity preflop, if the guy 5bet then depends on the stats you call or fold. but too me call is the worst move there.

    You should definitely 4bet pre. Co is just looking for flop with suited connectors etc. Button is trying to squeeze with TT. You can make the 4bet small, because CO cannot call if he has any brains. Something like 1.2$ should do it and you can still let go otf.

    If button shoves then it is kind of dicey. Folding/calling are both fine and depend on reads.

    +1 for 4bet small pre.

    OOP you want initiative and you also have some fold equity because Villain is squeezing in position and doesn't necessarily have a premium hand.

    Without reads on Villain I'd fold to 5-bet since we don't want to get it in pre with AK.
