Uh.... why? Against players who 3-bet a normal range, 4-betting these is pretty standard. This chart
is helpful. I first posted it in 2010...
3-bet percentage you need to be facing in order to 4-bet/call off
* KK+: Good against any range
* QQ: vs 3% or higher (3% is AK, JJ+, 40 combos total)
* JJ: vs 6.5% or higher
* TT: vs 8.5% or higher
* 99: vs 10.5% or higher
* 88: vs 12.5% or higher
* 77: vs 14% or higher
* AKs: vs 3% or higher (AK, JJ+, 40 combos total)
* AQs: vs 8% or higher
* AJs: vs 13% or higher
* AKo: vs 5% or higher (AK, JJ+, plus 22% bluffs)
* AQo: vs 9% or higher
Since villain in this post 3-bets 10% of the time, we can 4-bet and call off really loose with hands like AQ, TT and still show a profit.
