      I like c/r all-in here if there is some chance that he will bet IP (giving his stacksize)

      you can also try inducebet on flop (lets say 2$, so he might raise and youll shove over)

      thats if hes more aggro

      if hes more passive I think you have to bet/call flop, as played c/f turn

      I like the suggestions for post flop.

      Pre flop, what we you think about flatting with this kind of hand?

      Any stats on villain 3bet range or not enough hands? (I like the call way more if he is 3betting 10% or more...)

      I sometimes worry about AJ as being easily dominated on Axx boards in 3bet pots. Am I too cautious?

      I just bet $4.5-$5 and jam Turn

      With VPIp/PFR only given, I cannot give a real opinion about the c/RAI or induce thingie moves

      I guess flat is ok, since you hold on weaker Ax hands, but it is hard to play AJs profitable postflop, so I´d prefer 3-bet unless player likes to 4-bet a lot
      Don´t worry too much about domination. AK would most of times 4-bet, so that leaves AQ, but he could still have also a lot more weaker hands in his range that you dominate, like ATs or JTs, QJs, KJs.
