      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($51.37)
      BB ($60.33)
      UTG ($14.82)
      Hero ($25.15)
      CO ($31.92)
      BTN ($3.38)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: Q:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.87, CO raises to $3, fold, fold, fold, fold

      CO wins $2.09

      Villain is 27/24, 13.3 3bet% FT4B 1/3 cases only 217 hands.

      The sizing seemed a little bit big to me so I opted to fold in this spot, prolly didn't have that much of a sample at the time.

      What options do I have against an opponent with the given stats:
      -4bet/get it allin - expand my value range to JJ+/AQ+ ?
      -call OOP and play a pot? Looks like an option but I am not experimented with this situation. Should I start exploring this play ?

      I think it is too soon to expand your shobing range with only those hands.

      But I would AQo for 4-bet bluff and AQs for flatting and I wouldn`t fold in Axxxx board.

      In a long sample I would use JJ to shove PF against him..

      you can b/c AQs against that player. 4-betting would put you on difficult situation if he shoves, so better to also try keep down variance pf.
      I´d c/r for value on Axx and Qxx boards and play for stacks or at least would not consider c/c flop and c/f turn

      Best regards,
