For me the issue is the flat OOP pre flop. This makes awkward flops like the one in question hard to play profitably without position (IMO) If you were IP I think a flat is fine but I hope Im right in suggesting that at 2NL zoom 4bet shuv or even 4bet small call it off with AK oop is more optimal.

Post flop I think the float is fine, he bets small and you probably have 6 outs or the best hand. Once you turn a K you cant fold. Sets are possible but unlikely but if you call all that way to fold a King folding pre is deffinatly optimal.... I like the post flop play. Would have 4bet pre myself though.

I like what OMG itz Sams says, I prefer 4betting here with AK OOP for the exact reason in this hand. We are floating flop OOP in a 3bet pot and drawing to 6 outs? Doesn't seem like a good plan to me
