AK all-in as a big dog.

With the KK here I want to build a pot. If I'm up against AK and an A falls, I can let the hand go and save a few chips. AK is a hand that needs the 5 community cards. If I can get an AK to dance with me through the flop, pay a little more on the turn, then make it cost him to hit the river card, then I consider the risk of losing to the A = to the advantage of getting away from 2nd pair.

Looking back, if Cleveland had Q's, a re-raise may have been in order. However, if Cleveland had Q's I think he would have popped me back. Hard to say, but I think I like my play on that one.
