An ace and I'd probably fold. If a King falls on the flop, I'd probably call one street, but folding isn't bad either. I'm stacking off with all overpairs in 3-bet pots as well.
If our opponent has AK, he will flop a pair (or better) 32% of the time. So while if we shove preflop, he can call without making a mistake he has enough equity. But if we call with position, he will c-bet just about everything and he'll be wrong most of the time (and it will be easy for us to fold when he flops a pair).
If our opponent has a hand like AQ, KJ, or 99, then the odds of us getting outflopped decreases dramatically. These hands will probably fold if we 4-bet & get all in. However, if we call, they're going to c-bet most flops and we'll extract extra value from them.
Its a fairly complex question to know wether to 4-bet or call with position, but in general I use these factors to influence my decision:
1) If their hand range is weak (because they're 3-betting light), I'll call more.
2) If I have position, I'll call more.
3) If they are unlikely to call 4-bets light preflop, I'll call more.
4) Our hand plays very well on most flops.
I think we've got all 3 of these working in our favor. #3 is debatable, but when I was playing $10NL, people were exceptionally weak/tight preflop, especially when dealing with 4-bets.
