      $0.50 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: $32.27
      UTG: $52.93
      Hero (CO): $78.13
      BTN: $63.67 15 hands 30/20 3bet 2 out of 7 - so unknown
      SB: $51.48

      SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has Q:heart: Q:spade:

      UTG raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, BTN raises to $3.50, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $10.00, BTN calls $6.50

      Flop: ($22.25, 2 players) K:spade: 5:heart: 8:diamond:
      Hero ?

      I called b/c UTG seemed tight and BB is a fish. Is my 4bet too big? I was willing to go broke preflop and didn't consider Bu calling 4bet.
      what I saw at nl25 is villains calling 4bets with AK ( nut much, but at showdown it was AK,KQs sometimes AQs), so if I think AK is big part of his range - ch/f OK?
      if he's calling 4bet sometimes with JJ, TT, I don't think he would bet flop.

      Hello martins1337,

      Overall the 4bet sizing is fine but I would rather leave the pot alone on the flop cause I doubt you getting called from worse. Check it and reevaluate the further actions and decide accordingly. If you assume he isn't bluffing with JJ/TT then you know the play. :)

      He will also have KK/AA type of hands which trap like that in his calling range.

      Best Regards.
