      He was all in the Direct
      I should call with it?
      At that time, I thought: This opponent preflop raise on the only call other people, not very strong brand power
      FLOP likely he did not hit on the card, or cards without my big, and he has been stuck in a pot
      So, I chose to call

      Insta fold pre-flop, people are generally loose-passive meaning they'll only raise when they got the nuts. I definitely wouldn't squeeze KQo here cause I don't really wanna go broke.

      As played the flop is a snap call. We have SPTKq

      Hello wangwei520,

      Preflop: I don't like your squeeze at all here, just fold it. :)

      As played
      Flop: Yeah, likely you should get the correct equity against his shoving range, I'd also Call, sometimes you might even consider folding, since there is another guy behind you, but often times he is willing to fold.

      Best regards.

      In NL2, I wouldn't really do such bluff-squeezes or something similar, with hands like KQo, since they tend to Call so light, therefore which hands you usually do 3bet here for value by that I mean with we would be ready to go broke. Likely with QQ+, sometimes we can also add AK, JJ+, a lot depending on the opponents.
