Why did you 3-bet a UTG raise with AK? What's your plan if he or someone else 4-bets? Are you going to go with it on your stack? Probably better to just call and try to stack weaker aces on an ace high board.

AK, while it's a hand with much potential, it's only ace high.

preflop: UTG raises (probably a std raise amount for them here). I'd flat it here since you don't have a made hand. The opp could easily have a pkt pair here and you're behind all of them, even 22 as of now.
When you 3-bet and the opp shoves, I'm definitely mucking, as you're most likely behind and I'd want to save my chips for a situation where I know that I'd be ahead, not behind.
