If this a +EV spot to be stacking off with AKo? Should I have 5bet shoved here? Or as played ok?

Villain is a regular (902 hands)
4B Range: 5 over 25 samples

Insider information...
TOT 3BET: 7.8
TOT 3BET vs. HERO: 16.0

The question I would ask myself here is am I creating a favorable situation for myself 5-betting so small OOP against this villain?

As played you are getting around 1:1.6 on the call (if I calculated correctly) and would hence need > 37% equity to be +EV with it. Against a range of {QQ+,AK} or even {KK+,AK} that would be the case. So if you believe villain will only move in with KK/AA you could fold, but I don't believe that will practically be the case often unless villain is really tight here on a big sample.

So in case you were certain that for instance villain would be calling your 5-bet with worse or shoving one of the ranges above every time your line may be good. If it lets you unsure of whether you need to fold or call here I would probably choose a different path of shoving yourself, calling or even folding vs his 4-bet.
