      Hey Nipbourne,

      Villain has a reasonably high 3bet vs steal. You can definitely just flat here IP.

      In many ways the preflop price is not that relevant. Villain looks tight overall, and if his 3bet-vs-steal was a lot lower I'd fold anyway despite the small 3bet. This is because postflop reverse-implieds far out way preflop direct odds.

      I saw, just a mistype =(

      4-bet bluffing is an option but AQ becomes a little too strong to turn into a bluff. Your range for calling is a lot tighter OOP, so I'd definitely 4bet bluff with hands like KQ/AJ that I'd normally flat IP. AQ I'd possibly flat OOP, and I'd also flat premiums like AA and weight my 4bet range mainly toward bluffs at first.
