      SB: $8.63 (172.6 bb) 30/27/3b 16/4bet 33(3)/102 hands
      BB: $5 (100 bb)
      UTG: $16.29 (325.8 bb)
      MP: $5 (100 bb)
      CO: $5 (100 bb) 19/14/fld 3bet 67/304 hands
      Hero (BTN): $7.29 (145.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A:spade: Q:spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.15, Hero raises to $0.45, SB raises to $1.10, 3 folds

      here i decided to 3bet cause in the very last hand i 3bet him OOp with 98s cause i thought that he fold a lot on 3bets but he called me IP with a7s. So i 3bet my AQ for value however the sb who saw me in the last hand that i 3bet loose is might try to take off the situation and 4bet me light ? so i could probably 5bet AQs and get it in ? Also what if i had JJ ? (w QQ +,AK i shove easily).

      Oh you are quite deep vs him so i dont like thinking that you just go broke preflop with AQ vs SB. I think shoving would be here overplayed so folding is here the best play i think.

      Be careful on 4beting later hands if you have so aggressive SB acting behind you. If you have to aggressive small blind it is maybe better considering just calling preflop and calling possible squeezes from SB and play vs him IP.

      Well I don't really want to 3bet/go broke with AQ against a fairly tight opponent.
      If you think that he will call you with worse hands I don't mind 3betting.
      Nevertheless without much information I prefer flatting.
      When SB 4bets folding is fine.
