I 5 bet shove Q/Q at 25nl and yesterday I went up flipping with Q/Q against A/K and other way twice against regs yesterday at 10nl. Seriously if you're flat calling A/K pre-flop all the time against regs to a 3 bet OOP because you are too scared to 4 bet it then you are burning money.
If you get 3 bet and you are IP, then you can flat call but OOP just 4 bet and GII.
Hand yesterday against a regular:

If I folded to his 4 bet then I just threw 12 BB's down the drain, not to mention if I get 4 bet bluffed (which can happen blind on BTN) and I fold it's a major mistake, happened to me 3 days ago, Villain raises UTG, I 3 bet him, he 4 bets and I shove, then he folds lol.
