      Hi johny8984!

      I like the hand way you play it.

      Preflop: It would not be mistake get it in preflop, and 4-bet to $0.55. Flatting is fine, as gives you additional bet that you can extract from villain when he is bluffing or miss his flop with AK, A/K will not flop that often (but still approximately 30% of the time).

      Flop: Because villain is very aggressive I would call flop and get it in on turn and let him bluff 2 streets with high cards.

      You have quite nice sample size for villain. What is his 3-bet percentage? Have you seen him 3-be/ship it in with some odd hands or light? In such case I would prefer get it in preflop.
