Cmon, its just 1 hand for god sake Dont get excited or dissappointed over 1 hand lol. Do get excited over upswings or do get disappointed over really long downswings. Badbeat AK/AQ isnt worth mentioning

I would never have pushed all in straight away without any other pre flop action. I would have put a raise in and then if you are 3 bet then maybe you could shove and try and get him off his hand. The hand played out all wrong for you
If you have less than 20BB AK is a monster hand, you can raise from every position, reraise all in from every position, call reshoves. In some situations you can still fold though, for example if there is more than one player all in before you.

Completely disagree, if you have AK and you 3B and a tight player behind after you shoves then there's a very good chance that guy has a better hand than you. It'd most likely all come down to flips, but I honestly hate AK. I rarely shove pre-flop, I'll raise and only flat call any 3B. If the flop doesn't come my way then I'm saving myself the trouble of losing more chips in that off chance I may hit my pair.
Of course, this changes if there's a straight draw or if my AK is suited there's a flush draw. I'd honestly avoid shoving until I've seen the flop unless i'm less than 5-8 BB.
Not the best story! How do you like this: hero - AK vs player A Q Preflop: hero 3$, player raise 9$, Hero calls Flop: A 5 8 Hero checks, player bet 15$, hero reraise 35$, player all-in, hero calls. Turn: Q River: 7 And i losed three time this way!

Good shove equity wise on the pre flop and good move but it will give rises to lot of variance as it is , but you could have played the AK better like raising the betting on the flop if you hit or even do a delayed c bet if they tends to called with anything and you can fold if raised. Anyway this is how i would analyses my hands to see why it has lost and so on. Anyway good luck and have fun at the tables!
