      Hi.

      I think you should just 4-bet and get it in. By calling here, you are letting CO get really good odds on his call.

      Unless he's an extremely bad player, I think you are better off 4-betting here. You can balance this by cold 4-bet bluffing with hands like AJ/AQ sometimes.

      Thanks.
