      CO showed K A and lost (-$25.35 net)

      I don't have any significant sample on villain's 4b or f3b tendencies, but so far he seems like a decent fairly aggressive reg. He opens approx 30% from CU.

      CU and BU ranges are very weak here, but I don't want to play this hand out of position multiway without initiative. Plus I block some premiums, so I think squeeze is a good option. When he 4bets, my thought process is:
      - villain is probably aware that I perceive his CU range to be wide
      - given the positions, this is a super-obvious spot for me to squeeze
      - assuming he perceives me as a reg, he will expect me to squeeze light so he might make a move
      - his bet sizing has not committed him and looks like he can have bluffs here
      - so, let's re-bluff, we have blockers, blah blah blah

      Probably I just completely levelled myself?

      Given CO wide range I like the squeeze for value, possibly folding out CO and BU or getting either one to call and then CB on the flop and usually taking it down.

      Your mistakes are
      -Villian does not think about your range usually, they probably play by their hands, good hand raise, ok hands call, bad hands fold etc.
      -BU is still in the hand so it discourages spewy moves that happens more often if you were heads up.

      How does his 4bet stat ls look like? For you to profitably jam over AJo he needs to have a 4betstat over 10%.

      in short unless he has some kind of stats that shows his 4bet being super wide >10%, probably fold here.
