Raise with AKs. The calls seem like money in my pocket before the flop shows up. The flop can be frustrating. A once stellar hand can turn into garbage. I should be ahead. Reality, though, doesn’t care what should or shouldn’t be. It doesn’t make sense to be angry about even the most incredibly unlikely outcomes. It’s impossible to argue with the cards on the table. They are what they are and no amount of incredulity will change that. Fold your now-beaten hand or take your licks and wait for another pot. When it comes to poker, incredulity is worthless except in your opponents. Incredulity can make anyone call, just to see what they already know is true but cannot believe is true. [As usual, I suppose I will ramble less and become more precise when I write more.]
