        There's absolutely no choice but to reraise imo, calling trying to slow play or trap with minimum 3 in the pot is a recipe for disaster. Your reraise size was also spot on imo.

        Unfortunately you are going to experience people overplaying AK and just getting lucky.

          Very very bad beat, really. Just two tight aggressive players heads up by the reraise you made, and the underdog lucks out.

          Another way you could have approached pre-flop is to reraise the minimum or just smooth call. After that, you can jam post-flop to make a decent amount of money. This allows you to set a trap against UTG, and may have checked to you depending on the player. Since the board was quite dry, you could have made him fold on the flop by doing so. However, I would have much preferred the decision you have taken in order to obtain the maximum value.
