final table:
my opponent is a tight player, AA till 10 10 and AK AQ
but as we last three left i get AK o in SB,
his chip stack is more than double of mine.
my reasoning was to get the blinds and ante at this stage rather than let him into play.
also i got too many Ak last 10 hands and i thought the chances are high i will loose this one.
as i know he is a tight player did not expect him to call at this stage.
by the way button folded!

You played very well. AK is a strong hand, and you should play it. You did not have many big blinds left, so going all-in right away was correct. You just got unlucky. It happens sometimes, but you did play well.

Welcome to the forum, by the way!

As an almost 70% fav against their hand (65% vs a random one), you absolutely made the right decision. If I get that hand in that situation, I'm shoving 100% of the time.

Unfortunately, you got unlucky, but it's the correct play.
