      PKR, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      CO: $5.03 (20.1 bb)
      BTN: $43.97 (175.9 bb) 29/18/1.1/6.1/35/433 4 bet range 3%
      Hero (SB): $25 (100 bb)
      BB: $58.17 (232.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A A
      CO folds, BTN raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.25, BB folds, BTN raises to $7, Hero calls $4.75

      His 4bet range suggests he can have some hands that fold to a shove so I though I'll call his 4bet and x/shove most flops.

      Flop: ($14.25) Q 2 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $8.30, Hero raises to $18 and is all-in, BTN calls $9.70

      Turn: ($50.25) Q (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($50.25) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      I would just jam preflop. In order to justify flatting AA here, Villain needs to have a wide 4-bet bluffing range. Some conditions need to be met.

      A. High fold to 5-bet of 60%+: Indicates he is 4-bet bluffing a lot.
      B. Wide 4-betting range of 4%+: 3% is kind of standardish. If you had positional 4-betting s tats that'll be even greater

      3% seems pretty standard these days, maybe it might have been loose 2 years ago. for the sake of comparison, I have an overall 4b range of 5%.

      Another thing to point out is that his 4bet size was really large at 3.1X. I think he is likelier to have a hand like AK/TT/99 which has no intention of folding to a 5bet shove.

      For me, I usually use this flatting line when the dynamic points towards villain being very likely to 4bet bluff.
