      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: villain does seem fishy due to stack size so I don't mind a 3-bet for value however we still have to fold to a 4-bet.

      Postflop: I don't think this is the greatest flop to cbet versus a potential fish because we will get called often so we would need to barrel often. I also think that a 0.55 cbet would achieve the same thing (fold random air).

      However, my default here would be to ck/fold flop.

      So against Villain that isn't a fish, we should just Call with AQ?

      What if we had AK vs Reg or Fish?

      In these positions we can still 3-bet AQ for value but can't go 3-bet/shove without history. Only if villain folds a lot to 3-bets we start considering calling.

      And AK is the same.
