      I know he is quite aggro but I have trouble seeing him give action to my cold 4bet with less than QQ+ and AK. I decided to cold flat, even OOP and bring the fish to the pot. Wanted to get input on this. Flop I guess it was pretty standard.

      You rarely get action with less than AK, QQ+ when you 4bet anyway but the idea if to make him fold a good share of his equity when you are OOP and can't play well postflop anyway. I would lean towards 4betting here, I just can't see myself make money OOP unless I hit quite big. If you were IP I like the idea of calling, keeping the fish in and a reasonably wide MP range that we have dominated often.

      I guess it's close depending on how much you think you can make mostly out of the fish when you don't hit as big as you did here. Reg will OK IP imo so I wouldn't count on making too much from him. I would be a lot more inclined to just flat KK+ here since now I have a lot easier play postflop. With AK I think it's good enough to make them fold their equity and avoid either of them using position.
