      Still hate the 4-bet callers. I have no idea what to do on the flop, except the times i have AA. Also if the 4-bet is a bluff and gets called, i see no other way to cbet the flop, wether it has A or K or Q or all of them or it's dry or wet board. Ok, maybe on AKQ board i would give it up if that was a bluff pre. Otherwise, i don't see any other way to find out where we are. I deffinetly don't want to get bullied by AQ here. I hope that there is an option of folding here if he shoves over my cbet?

      since you 4-bet that small I think often players would call that especially ip
      So I´d suggest 4-bet bigger to 5.2-5.5$ and I think players would then fold also more often especially when you´re deeper
      b/f that flop is fine, but I´d likely make it 4.5-5$. the smaller you bet the more likely it seem stronger to other thinking player. and also that keeps your bluffs also small
      You can maybe also take c/rai line with two overcards and backdoor flushdraw
      this way you don´t have to worry that he may shove himself worse hands
