      Hello vmarqui,

      Preflop: Not much to say, I would as well Call it here for the given odds. No way I am folding it. Although I wouldn't 4bet it either without any specific reason. If we knew the opponent more then we could even consider like 4bet easily for value. Sometimes I do the same as well and trap with hands like KK/AA against those squeezers.
      Postflop: I'd still bet like $8-9 or so. Your 1/2 bet could just induce him to Check/Raise if he is aggressive enough and I am pretty sure he has a lot of fold equity there. And that's true that there is not much to do than Bet/Fold it.

      Best regards.
