      Known players:

      0.1/0.2 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:diamond: , K:heart:
      4 folds, MP2 raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BU raises to $1.00, SB calls $0.90, Hero raises to $4.00, MP2 folds, BU calls $3.00, SB folds.

      Flop: ($9.40) 8:club: , 3:club: , 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $3.00, Hero raises to $18.60 (All-In)...

      When he calls 4bet pf and bets small into the flop I put him on JJ-QQ, AK.
      He folds too much postflop so I try and bluff him out representing KK+.
      Vs JJ/QQ I have some outs.

      Your play isnt very good, especially with BU having only 4% preflop raise and minraising a minbet.
      In such a spot we have to proceed with caution. We cant really call, folding is the best play, since I expect his range to be AK,QQ+ here.
      That being said, even against an unknown you are not representing AA/KK, but more or less what you have - an AK/AQ with or without the FD(without it the play is pretty bad obviously). Against this player I'd cbet small such a flop and give up, or even more, c/f it, as he isnt folding the majority of his range.

      Best regards,
