      My thinking here is he's unlikely to have QQ/KK/AA pre without reraising after the 4 bet short stack. On the flop his bet is so weak I think he either has AK/AQs or a weak pair he's not sure about. He had so much invested I think a shove is best.

      I think your preflop play is fine.

      On the flop I prefer calling and reevaluating the turn.
      I don't think raising is fine since he would have a hard time calling with a worse hand.

      If you move all in on that flop what worse hands can call you?

      I think 88/99/1010 or even 44/55 can call with the portion of there stack invested and pot size. I think flatting makes it awkward as a Q/K/A puts me behind his AQ/AK range and makes him fold low pairs for sure. On the flop I think with his preflop flat and his flop bet sizing just makes it very unlikely that he has QQ/KK/AA.
