      Hi,

      After a month spent playing Civilization, I'm back to poker :) Things are not going too well so far, today was a good day until this hand happened

      Preflop: I don't know what to do here. His 3bet value is very low, but the situation is good for a squeeze. Do you think he must have a strong hand here? Should I fold? Should I 4bet? Didn't want to 4bet because we were deep, although maybe 4bet/fold was the best option

      Flop: No need to protect, so decided to call and re-evaluate

      Turn: Can I find a fold here? He showed lots of strength, but I guess he would play AJ, KK, QQ the same way. Maybe even TT and AT

      Any opinions welcome :)

      Thanks
      Yuri

      I don't think many NL10 players understand what a squeeze is but this player looks TAGish so we will give him the benefit of the doubt I guess ;)

      Calling the "squeeze" IP if fine IMO. WE keep his range wide.

      There can pros and cons of just calling flop. Like u said we don't need to protect against much but I usually only do this HU because here we don't have ultimate position.

      As played I can't fold either. His AF is 13.0 which is maniac style so could be getting funky with Ax, KK, QQ, JJ, TT

      NH IMO.

      I also discovered civilization but decided to delete it (at first my desktop screen), since it is really destroying my poker game :D
      Anyway: I think I´d also call pf
      He likely isn´t going to overbet shove AJ/AT or KK-TT so it is either AK or maybe some kind of draw
      I think if you don´t have reason to expect player is overbet shoving there too light I´d likely just fold since you´re seeing AK a lot of times
      Flop call seems fine. no need really do build pot deep and then have no idea what to do if he shoves
