      Didn't look at the result yet but i assume villain had QQ+. Even though it's CO vs BB, he doesn't seem to defend much so his range is at the very most TT+,AQ+.
      Personally in this situation i would either 4bet ~11$ and fold to a shove, or fold right away. If you just call you if you get a flop like that you get stacked if he has a better pocket pair but you don't get a lot of value if he has AK/AQ.

      As played I feel you should have been a bit more cautious. Villain has the stats of a solid player so i doubt he would call your bets with a worse hand. I especially don't agree with the reraise on the flop. You're scaring off AK/AQ which might 2nd barrel on the turn, and you don't have much to protect against. With an AF of 4.7 villain is very likely to shove AcKc/AcQc on the flop anyway.

      4-Bet/fold with this hand is pretty bad, since you could make the same move with 72o, although stacksizes are perfect for 4-bet bluffing.
      Calling preflop is the best play here. Since we are not that deep, we won't get away from this hand anyway, so raise/broke Flop is standard here.
