      Hard to say without any information on your opponent. Assuming you don't have any history and he is a common, straightforward taggish player, his range for 4betting you MP vs CO ~130bb deep is likely as strong as

      QQ+, AKs, AKo

      * If you 5bet him, you'll likely be up against KK+, maybe AK if he believes this is the nuts preflop. So you're often totally crushed, and sometimes flipping.

      It's not worth it.

      * If you just call, you're going to end up in one of two situations :

      - there is an overcard on the board, in which case he will c-bet an amount that will commit you both and you will have to assume that AK just outdrew you and fold.

      - there are no overcards on the board, you often won't get anything more out of AK, and you will likely have to stack off bad against QQ+.

      It's not worth it either.

      * The other option is to simply give it up right there, and i believe until you have reasons to assume that your opponent has a wider 4betting range than that, it's best to simply let go of QQ in that spot.

      Hope it helps.
