First of all I would like to mention that it is great how you guys help us out
Furthermore I also have a question, I woke up with AKo in early position and I made it $ 3 (3 times the BB). A rather unknown player to me raised me to $10 and a person who was on tilt (he lost 2 big pots in a row and went allin 2/6 hands) with rather small stack left minraised to $17 and he had only $4 left. I folded my AKo, as I suspected the intial reraiser put the tilter allin and he ofcourse called (with 88) the initial raiser had KQo, rather loose reraise. However I would have won the pot in the end.
My question is: should I fold or 5bet in a situation like this were I get 4betted in a squeeze with AKo in general?

Thanks in advance,

Answer: It depends. Without reads, I think AKo is a fold, but I'm sure more experienced voices than mine will chime in.
