One of the cool things about reraising AK preflop in a 100 BB game is that it effectively makes the stacks smaller. AK is a great hand for making one pair hands, and a good one pair is great in a short-stack game, but it sucks in a deep stack game. If someone opens for 4 BB and you reraise to 12 BB, then the pot will have about 25 BB if they call. Now you each only have 88 BB left, which is just over 3 pot size bets, and it's prefectly reasonable to play one pair for your stack in that case.
