Hand converted by PokerTracker 4: http://www.pokertracker.com
BTN: 111 BB (VPIP: 31.72, PFR: 30.34,
BTN wins 212 BB
3 BB was deducted from the pot for the jackpot.
I'm on the edge deciding whether or not I should not have called the 4-bet. AJs is near bottom of my 3 betting range, but I noticed villain was playing very loose so I decided to call and evaluate. What should I have done differently?
Or just a bad beat?

If his statistics are crazy, then 5 bet pre. All in is probably too much, but I would 5 bet to around 40 BB, where I would be okay folding to a 6 bet jam.
Once you get to the flop, check call seems standard, maybe a check raise wins you the pot right here, but tough to do so with the action preflop. OOP on the turn hurts you here as you have to check, where if you were in position you could have bet when checked to. On the river, you have a bluff catching hand, but again, without statistics on this player who knows if he bluffs KK or JJ, as any other standard 4 betting hand has hit this board (AA, AK, QQ, AQ).
So if this guy really is this crazy, 5 bet pre flop, or check raise the flop would be better lines here

Hey thanks man, appreciate the insight. After reviewing this hand again, I agree that I should've check raised on flop. Did not want to 5-bet because I honestly did not think the near bottom of my 3-bet range is stronger than villain's 4-bet range.

Seems like he is loose hate cold calling 4 bets though. out of position I would probably 5 bet to 40 if I have the read but I'm general just fold and wait for another day unless this is frequently occurring.

Don't 5-bet pre. Calling the pre OOP here is fine vs. someone like this. You want to keep his bluff range in. As played, I don't mind 25bet/fold or check/call if you think he's super aggressive.
