Villain was an aggressive reg (not an aggro-monkey, but aggressive). He was running something like 33/30/3 with 0% Fold to 3bet in 116 hands.
Preflop I squeezed for value since I thought villain could totally call with worse. I cbet the flop with the intention of getting it in if villain raised me. OTT, I didn´t think there was enough value on betting myself. Yes, I think he still could peel the turn with something like TT or JJ, but I thought there was more value on letting he bet the scare card and take the c/c line (after the flop action, there was $18.25 in the pot and I had $16.25 behind, I was totally commited and not planning on folding anymore).
Btw, I posted a thread on "General Discussions" forum about some math on 4betting, check it out and say what's your opinion: http://www.deucescracked.com/forums/4-General-Discussion/topics/391861-Checking-the-math-on-4bet?page=0&per_page=15#post_3355991
