How much are you raising?  From what position?  

This is a strong drawing hand, but just a drawing hand.  You should be playing it with strength, and when you miss the flop, it might be worth another probe bet....just to see where you stand in the hand.

AK is very hard to play

i usually make a 4-5 BB raise what ever the position in order to test other callers hands

if i am not the first to speak after the flop and the other checks i make a continaution bet in order to make believe a pocket pair

this is i guess not THE way of playing it but the best way i find in average

Depends the stage of the tournament. Early, raise the usual 4 times the blinds, but you don't really want much action, but late, more short handed tables. It becomes a monster.
