      The guy was very aggressive, stealing, 3-beting and 4-beting all the time, so I decided to confront him with AQs.. Maybe I should wait better spot, because can't expect to be far ahead?

      I think the mistake was calling that 4bet, you should have given him credit for at least having a pocket pair. Though A :spade: Q :spade: look pretty much powerful but not always it is the best option to go all-in preflop. But all depends on the tendencies and the history which I don't know. But I would most definitely let it go. You also were playing against a big stack, if he is raising you then he most definitely is sure that he will beat you.

      Seems fine to me. Don´t think he would 4-bet/call too many worse hands (maybe only AJ/KQ), but since you always have fold equity and he has gone out of line with his 3-bets/4-bets you need to fight at some point and AQs is perfectly strong hand sb vs bb war

      best regards,
