      With AA or KK I would reraise. I wouldnt straight out shove this deep but I would make it about 3.60-4.00. With AK or QQ it depends on the villain really.

      yes but what about when i am holding the other hands KK QQ AK

      if i only 4bet AA it bomes kind of obvios what i have because im never bluffing in this spot but maybe i should bluff with some frequency in this spot

      when i see people calling a 3bet like that im thinking okay he has AK or QQ

      with KK you 4bet. Your playing NL10 where precious few players will actually notice you 4bet only KK/AA, so even though its exploitable i would continue not bluff 4betting. With QQ/AK you will only 4bet if you think villain can call/shove with worse. When he calls a 3bet, in my experience most players have AK/QQ/JJ and sometimes TT/AQ.

      Hello mkjmkjmkj,

      Well, do you know the opponent? If not then why ain't ya 4betting? You practically giving him the opportunity to hit a set and then you will pay of with your AA.

      Best Regards.
