I noticed that the BB was pretty agressiv after a few hands, that's why I went for the 4bet. However a didn't have the exact stats of him at this point. Later I saw that he had played 29/21 with a 3bet of 16 after 40 hands (at this point).
Even though I won the hand, I somehow feel, that there's probably a point where I could have played different? What do you think? It was especially a little bit uncomfortable because we were pretty deep.

4-bet bigger pre, 22-25bb. Hand/flop bet sizing is played fine against aggro dude.
I'd prefer to flat here. You are ahead of a decent amount of his range, and it plays better vs his 3-betting range than his 3-bet/call 4-bet range. If you are 4-betting AJs here, you probably have too many bluffs in your 4-bet range. Like what hands are you flatting with if you 4b AJs vs him?

Nh... I like your 4-bet sizing to keep him involved in the hand and use position. Good flop sizing and turn check. You played this hand very well on every street.

I 4-bet a little bigger but not much (23-24bb), and I occasionally flat here instead. I like the 4-bet vs this guy.
