Did I play this ok. Should I just flat call and see a flop?

When the CO called behind the initial raiser was I really supposed to believe he had AA or KK. I thought he had QQ or AK.

Villain 4 20/13/0 over 15 hands

Villain 6 14/5/4

Hi tony,

Either flat calling or 3-betting pre is fine. We don't have many reads with only 15 hands on the opener, but the caller is likely small and medium pair heavy, so I don't mind 3-betting to deny him a price to set mine us. I'm generally not 3b/folding AK on 100bb's, so when he back raises I would go with it as well. There's now enough overlay in the pot to make it profitable unless we have detailed notes that he fancies this play with AA (the flat/back raise). And, obviously, there's always a chance he can put 40bb's in the pot and fold to a shove. Not a good one imo, as I wouldn't expect much fold equity, but clearly FE wasn't zero.

Thank you for the feedback. I hate shoving with AK but this spot seemed like a good spot to do it.
