      Given he didn't 4-bet this preflop in such a situation, he's unlikely to have AA/KK, was also looking for a fold preflop considering BTN was 3-betting quite often and SB is passive.

      I'd definitely 4bet bigger preflop - around $3.

      As played, I prefer betting like $2 on the flop and playing for stacks. Our hand is very good with two overcards and FD.
      You don't need to bet so big in 4bet pots since the SPR is so small.
