      Full Tilt - $0.25 NL - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: $41.67 (VPIP: 87.50, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 8)
      Hero (BB): $25.00
      CO: $23.03 (VPIP: 17.28, PFR: 12.30, 3Bet Preflop: 5.00, Hands: 1,346)
      BTN: $25.58 (VPIP: 23.95, PFR: 16.16, 3Bet Preflop: 5.23, Hands: 16,440)

      SB posts SB $0.10, Hero posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has A:spade: Q:spade:

      CO raises to $0.75, BTN raises to $2.60, fold, Hero raises to $5.50, fold, BTN calls $2.90

      Flop: ($11.85, 2 players) 7:spade: A:heart: 3:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $8.29, Hero calls $8.29

      Turn: ($28.43, 2 players) 2:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $11.79 and is all-in, Hero calls $11.21 and is all-in

      River: ($50.85, 2 players) 4:heart:


      Preflop: good situation to 4bet w/AQs.

      Flop: we hit TP so I don't see value here. KK, QQ which he didn't want to stack off pre would fold vs our bet. When we check KK and QQ check too no reason for betting.
      It's hard to make assumption during the hand but I don't see many bluffs in this situation especially in 4bet fold.
      So can we just fold on the flop?

      Hey unknownJoseph,

      Postflop looks fine imo. Your range looks a lot like JJ-KK type stuff when you don't cbet, so I don't think you should be folding this hand postflop in a 4-bet pot.

      The donwside to 4betting preflop is that you look extremely strong and probably don't get action from worse a lot. The only way you'd ever think about c/f the flop is if you are decidedly bluffing preflop.

      AQs should be strong enough to flat vs a wide button resteal though. The downside is that you may play multi-way, the up side is you don't turn your hand into a bluff.
