      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (MP): $71.08 (142.2 bb)
      CO: $32.87 (65.7 bb)
      BTN: $67.96 (135.9 bb)
      SB: $50.25 (100.5 bb)
      BB: $12.75 (25.5 bb)
      UTG: $100.32 (200.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A Q
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.50, CO folds, BTN raises to $4.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $11.50, BTN raises to $19.50, Hero calls $8

      Flop: ($39.75) 3 2 J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $8, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      BTN was a really aggro reg (like me :) ), he played 32/32 after 25 hands, 3bet 27%, AFq 57, and we already had some preflop dynamics going on.
      I thought it's a good spot and hand to fight back with a 4bet. After getting such a min5bet, can I ever fold? Potodds are 20%...
      Postflop? I'm quite lost in 5bet pots... :P

      i dont like your 4bet preflop given the way you played.
      1) you are deep and in earlier positions, which makes 4betting AQ for thin value less favourable
      2) You did not have a good gameplan. if i were to 4bet here, it would be in the hopes that he 5bets small as a bluff, allowing me to 6bet jam and take down the pot a lot of the time.

      so i either call, or 6bet jam AQ here.
