      Hero (BB): 142.65 BB
      UTG: 279.9 BB
      MP: 112.25 BB
      CO: 50.8 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:spade: A:club:

      UTG raises to 3.5 BB, fold, fold, BTN raises to 6 BB, fold, Hero raises to 12 BB, fold, BTN calls 6 BB

      Flop: (28 BB, 2 players) 8:club: 6:spade: T:diamond:
      Hero bets 11 BB, BTN calls 11 BB

      Turn: (50 BB, 2 players) 5:spade:

      River: (104.5 BB, 2 players) J:diamond:

      Hero shows A:spade: A:club: (One Pair, Aces) (Pre 87%, Flop 96%, Turn 100%)
      BTN shows A:heart: Q:heart: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 13%, Flop 4%, Turn 0%)
      Hero wins 99.3 BB

      uTG 160 hands, 24/21, fodl to 3bet 75
      BU 18/10, 3bet 6

      I 4bet so small, because I wanted UTG to call, and expect then BU with his strong range to probably shove, so I get extra money from UTG if he makes mistake.

      On postflop I usually split his stack size into 3bets, because he 3bets mostly with 88+, AQ+, so he doesnt have more than 2 outs here.

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: I don't think that our 4-bet size matters when it comes to UTG. He seems like a tight guy (when faced with 3-bets) so you can imagine that our range look really strong to him. We may induce a lighter "set mine" call every now and then though. However, that's not to say that I would 4-bet bigger, your size is fine at 12-14 BB.

      Postflop: As played your bet sizing on the flop is fine and I think that with just 27 BB behind in a pot of 50 BB it doesn't really matter what we do because the money goes in there anyway.
