Here is a hand where I definitely step out of my comfort zone, but I think I picked a good spot. This may be total spew.

Villain is 24/19/4.7 @885 hands. 3bet range is 10%. I decide to turn my hand into a bluff, which may be the mistake in this hand, but I don't feel comfortable playing ATo OOP against his 3bet range because I have 40% equity in a bloated pot where I am easily dominated. I elect to push my steal equity to the maximum hear in but in the minimum 4bet size that I think will be effective and still give good odds.
After he calls my 4bet I feel safe putting him on AK,AQs type hands, maybe QQ, and probably not AA and KK because I would expect a shove from him PF. I decide to go AI because I don't want to make a half pot bet and make him think he has fold equity with AK. The flop connects with zero of his range so only overpairs can really continue. QQ might fold, and KK and AA are unlikely so I think this is a profitable shove. He was playing 8 tables at the time and I think many TAG-stat gridners will play AK like this at NL10. Am I discounting the possibility of AA and KK too much?
First: I do think you are discounting AA and KK from his range too much. I can easily see him calling your 4-bet because he knows that you will only have about a PSB left, and you'll be OOP and can probably be expected to shove almost any flops.
Second consideration: Since you have a decent amount of hands, what is his fold to 4-bet? Important info to have since you are effectively turning your hand into a bluff.
Third: Do you really think anyone at 10NL is folding QQ on that flop? I would be surprised to not get a crying call from JJ and TT if they are in his range. With a 3-bet of 10%, he's obviously not too skittish and isn't prone to folding.
Fourth: I think he usually ships AK preflop because it's at the top of his 3-betting range (10%, lol), training videos have told him to, and he's scared of not knowing what to do when he doesn't flop a pair.
Fifth: What is your image? If you've been 3-betting a fair bit this will effect how he plays against you. He may be playing too many tables to pay really close attention, but his stats suggest he is using a HUD and will know your 3B%. Also, you are in earlyish position and he's still willing to 3-bet you, which suggests strength. However, if he's 3-betting 10% he may not really be taking that into account.
I fold unless I have a solid read, but I really need to study the 3-bet, 4-bet, etc section before I have an opinion that I'm willing to put my name on.
