      Preflop sucks. he seems aggro and so on, but it's really small sample, so what would be the best line? Just fold to 4bet? As played when i cbet i think we can't do anything but cbet and call.

      In general I'm not a big fan of calling 4bets because the stack to pot-ratio will be so small postflop.
      However, I know there are some people who do it.
      BUT: you have to know he 4bets a completely polarized range that is weighted heavily towards air to make that a good call - and even then you can just ship it and get a ton of folds preflop.
      Having said that I think you should just fold to the 4bet because even though he's aggro in terms of openraising and 3betting that doesn't say anything about his 4bettingrange - most people will still only 4bet the top2% of total hands (even on NL200 it's very common for 90%+ of the regs to have a 3bet pf 10% but a 4bet-range of 2-3%).

      As played I'd bet $1.9 on the flop to put him in an even tougher spot. If he has a better hand the money will go in anyway.
