      I see pocket Aces lose all the time, but still find it hard to not play them aggressively. Would my pot sized bet OOP on the flop have been too aggressive, considering his apparent strength pre-flop? Since I had the Aces I put him on Jacks, Queens or Kings.

      Hello WpgJets,

      I like your 4bet there, I wouldn't flat it either. No need to. Just 4bet it for value and keep it so. Although what I would change is that I would CB smaller, there is no need to make such a big bet, rather induce him to bluff against you, I would make like 1/2 pot size and let him continue with weaker hands, we are never folding here.

      Best Regards.
