      Hey Daisuke3823,

      Think you played this hand fine overall.

      Ok to 3bet preflop especially if MP has low Ft3bet.

      Vs squeeze, you can do either, although I often choose to flat since it's lower variance and involves a little more skill. 4betting is clearly a +EV option though so depends on your preference. The downside is that certain player types will fold most worse hands and only 5bet better. The upside to 4betting is that you protect your equity (since any 2 cards have a decent amount of equity vs AKo)
