      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: We are a bit deeper here at 116 unlike the AQ hand so we can 4-bet slightly larger, but I'd still go for 26-27 BB here.

      If people are often calling 4-bets at these limits with weak hands we can stop 4-bet bluffing in spots like this and just go small for pure value. And there's no point to go AI 4-bet when people make such huge mistakes to call you.

      Postflop: As played I'd just bet 1/3 pot and go with the hand.
