      hmm, actually, I didn`t want to post this one)) I just had so many hands to review so I messed them up. I`ve changed the hand in the first post.

      It's still a fold, except you think a squeeze play would work, but given your limited reads on the players, I'd fold.
      You should've reloaded btw, you're 13.5 BB stack is only good for "dwarf stack strategy"

      I would definately squeeze here if I had stats, that`s actually what I did, but only because of my stack size

      Considering your stack size and the few stats and reads you have, I would shove here sometimes, since you still have fold equity against hands like ATs+ or some Pockets. But thats really depending on the reads of your opponents, since that is a bit more of an advance play.

      to quote karlo123: "160 hands = unknown" :)

      i agree with berliner that you need real good reads for squeeze plays. furthermore i´m not quite sure if it´s really necessary to squeeze a lot at nl50. only in perfect situations

      frzl, quote me saying that I have a good sample here)) Of course you don`t have to squeeze on NL 50 a lot) as well as you don`t have to be fancy) It`s self-destructive and I know it) so don`t worry)

      By saying:

      "I would definately squeeze here if I had stats"

      I actually didn`t mean 88. As a VERY general rule I squize when I have a loose raiser from MP and caller behind him. In this case I will loosen up a bit my push range to AQs, TT and maybe 99. As a SS player you have to hunt for deadmoney from time to time.

      In this particular hand my decision is based on my stack size, as I said.
