      Do we know that he calls AJs here? By default I assume that we would turn our hand into a bluff preflop with a cold 4bet.

      I think 4bet/broke should be fine here. As a fish, I'd expect him to call some 4bets with some dominated hands a lot of the time (AJ/KQ/AQ), and if he jams, we are probably committed against a range of AK/QQ+ so there's definitely value in a 4bet (we are mostly hoping he flats our 4bet with worse broadways).

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 38.82% 18.15% 20.68% AKo
      MP3 61.18% 40.50% 20.68% QQ+, AKs, AKo

      Pot will have ~16.50, we would need to call 6.35 more and we will be getting 6.35/16.50 = 38.5% equity (break-even call)

      As played, with top two pair, easy stack off. Only thing I would have done differently would be to half pot the Turn. With your sizing, I think you are almost never bluffing. You also don't need to bet so large to have a pot size shove on the Turn.
