I would just limp in and wait for the flop.  Too often players overbet AK;  it's not even a pair yet.
If their suited I would raise 3 times the BB.

Many think AK suited as too good a hand, since its considered premium but its not. Even pocket 2s vs AK suited, the pocket 2s have the advantage if preflop, 55% vs 45%. Thats how I lost one of my tourneys when I overplayed AK. I would just say raise a little or even check b/c most of poker depends on the flop and playing preflop can ruin anyone.

I only play preflop all in if QQ-AA or low stack ill play others.

AK sometimes needs to be played carefully. Better safe....
