Often in late position, one tends to be a little less tight than in early position, your AK was likely a good call.
To have that late position caller wake up with QQ was unfortunate, and that your AK didn't improve also unfortunate because it put you out. But I think you made the right move, considering your stack size relative to the field.
Likely too, they would expect you to have any two cards.

good luck in the future - may that AK hold up for you!

With the stack sizes of your opponents, you absolutely made the right move. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is letting a bad result alter how you think. You should concentrate on whether or not you made the right decision. I know this is tough, but bad beats and cold decks will happen. The only thing you control in poker is your decision-making process, make that as bullet-proof as possible and the wins WILL follow eventually.

Hope that helps.

Good luck!!
