      Ok to 4bet here? As we can see he was making lots of 3bets, so I have to do something. BUt could 4bet smaller, would probably be enough 4.5$

      Why do u 4bet fold such a good hand? 14% 3bet range contains a lot of crap, so why dont u just call and play postflop in position?
      If he 3bets and folds a lot to 4bets, than choose some worse hands with some blockers to 4bet fold.
      I agree that a smaller 4bet size would be better.

      I didn't want to call becasue I might be dominated by AQ+
      BTW forgot to say that sample is small, its something like 60 hands.

      well you can always make decisions postflop and get away your AJ, but also you have to realize he is 3-betting more often hands that you´re dominated, like JT, JTs, QJs, KJs, maybe A5s+, so I would not worry that too much being dominated about AQ+.

      Best regards,
