      I squeeze and get called by a calling station in the BB. I don't think the villains range is going to be only super strong hands given that he likes to call a lot, and since only QJ really crushes my hand I think my bet/shove is alright against this guy.

      What do you think about my play here? How would you have played in this spot?

      you can first just call pf rather than squeeze, but squeeze is also fine with blockers
      On that board I´d also bet/shove although I´d likely make it 14$ to give him maybe chance call once and then fold like K turn card without him being pot committed to any turn card

      Hello again, thank you for your replies!

      I didn't include the stats, but the UTG raiser was a fairly loose player with a high fold to 3-bet%, and I think that this is a very good squeeze spot. I am obviosly bluffing and have an easy fold if I get 4-bet, but I think I pick up the pot most of the time.

      I don't like to call preflop because I don't think AJ is doing too well in this spot.
