      Preflop plan is good imo. I definitely agree with flatting premiums here at least some of the time.. with regards to 4bet for value I think you can include QQ as well next to AK in the some of the time part. 4bet fold hands.. I think AQo and KQo might be a bit too much and AQo is reasonable to flat OOP too. Both valid for blockers but maybe a bit too many 4bets plus AQ is not that bad to flat like I said so I'd go 4bet KQo as a bluff and try to flat AQo with the other hands in my range.

      Postflop is fine as a line but I think your river bet is too big. Do you think he calls all Ax to that sizing? You don't rep almost any bluffs with this line.. I would actually consider betting very small here to induce some spew while looking like JTs, JJ sort of hand that wants a cheap showdown.
