    You really don't have the correct implied odds to call the 3bet here, you're having to call 21 cents more to win a possible 88 cents total, the 42 already in the pot plus the 46 villain 1 has left, you don't know villain 9 will call and even if he does you can still only win $1.67, in the long run this it's not a +EV call, for it to be a +EV call you'll need to be able to win at the very least 15 times the bet you have to call, in this case $3.15, 0.21 times 15, in fact PSO recommend 20 times the bet.

    You have to remember AKs looks nice but its still a drawing hand, you still need to hit the flop to win if the villain is ahead of you pre-flop, say the villain has 22 he's still ahead of you pre-flop and if you miss the flop and he go's all in what are you going to do call hoping to hit an Ace or king by the river, but what if he had AA or KK then your in real bad shape, you're only hope is a flush or straight.

    I would off just folded the hand and waited for a better spot here, but as it is it was a cooler here with the turn and river cards giving him the full house.
    I hope this helps you to improve you game.
    all the best
