Default AKo....to call or not to call...that is the question

I am new to table and have no reads on villain as of yet. I come accross hands like this a lot...Is this pretty much and auto-call anytime given that there is enough in the pot to justify calling vs. one-pair, over pair. I guess this hand is very read dependent.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (8 handed) Poker Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: 2+2 Forums)

UTG+1 ($24.40)
MP1 ($24.25)
MP2 ($12.65)
CO ($25)
Hero ($24.50)
SB ($26.75)
BB ($5.35)
UTG ($17.10)

Preflop: Hero is Button with A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, UTG+1 calls $0.25, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, MP2 calls $0.25, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $1.35</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, UTG+1 folds, MP2 calls $1.10.

Flop: ($3.30) 6[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 9[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
MP2 checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $2.5</font>, <font color="#CC3333">MP2 raises to $11.3</font>, Hero calls $8.80.

Turn: ($25.90) Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

River: ($25.90) 2[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

Final Pot: $25.90

Results in white below: <font color="#FFFFFF">
MP2 has Th Tc (one pair, tens).
Hero has Ad Ks (high card, ace).
Outcome: MP2 wins $25.90. </font>

I'm not sure what others would say but I don't like it. You have outs to the 2nd nut flush but you'd probably have to discount those outs because he might already have the flush. I think we're about a 2:1 underdog and calling the all-in doesn't give you the odds for that.

Raise more preflop and therefore larger c-bet and you have to call anyways. As played, meh. You beat Asx and that's about it. MAYBE Ax8x, K8. This may be a spot where getting raised is the worst thing imaginable, consider checking behind as there is no value in betting... only as a kind of mindless c-bet. Lots of cards improve you on turn and you probably have the best hand anyways, just no need to protect it IMO. Against an aggro opponent the turn should be a good spot to catch bluffs. In general I'd try to show this down without putting any more in the pot.
