FP was hoping someone would come up with the answer I gave at #2, but he then deleted it because giving it away too early was going to kill the discussion.
In his ebook "Easy Game, vol 1", belugawhale (Andrew Seidman) lists the 3 good reasons to bet. First one is for value when you expect to get called by worse. Second one is as a bluff, when you expect to fold better hands. Neither really apply here. And third one is maliciously not listed in FP's poll, which is unfortunate since it's the main reason why we 4bet AK preflop against a reg 100bb deep.
