      Better raise 3x preflop and make 1/2 or 2/3 (on dry or drawy accordingly) of pot contibet. If you get raised, give up. Problem with 4x is, that you need to showe in bad situations when you don't hit any thing.

      on preflop , what if there is 1 who raised and after that another 1 called , in the strategy , there are only 3 scenarios more than one opponent raised before you,exactly one opponent raised before you & an opponent re-raised after you but nothing on 1 who raised and after that another 1 called.

      I think nothing changes here. Just go all-in with JJ+ and AK. You can squeeze even looser, but you must know opponents (how loose first openraises and what caller usually coldcalls).

      With th AQ you can make a continuation bet on the flop if you get raised you should fold.
