      RIVER ($9.45) 9:club: 2:club: 7:club: T:diamond: 8:club:

      UTG. vpip: 30, pfr: 22, af: 7.0, 89 hands
      CO. vpip: 6, pfr: 4, af: 0.5, 50 hands

      I think its ok to squeeze here, but what to do later when UTG calls and CO shoves? I did shove because UTG range didnt look strong but CO is so tigh im not sure if its fine idea. but if i 3bet/fold i was bluffing when i squeezed but i was doing that for value so i suppose i have to play for stacks here?

      I play this the same way as you. If this was higher limit & CO had full stack, and player knew you sqz light then I would defo be worried about CO, but as it is I think he is shipping AQ/most pairs and I think we do v good against his range + so much dead money now. If UTG 4b I am more worried than if CO 4b's at this limit, unsure what I do vs UTG but if he is good player I get it in anyway because he is good enough to realise that he should be shipping QQ alw. Anyway as it happens he doesn't 4b and I think that the fact he flats means he has a strong hand but not one he is confident of shipping, so as played I think v standard ship and well played hero.

      Hello nktns,

      For the reason that CO doesn't have full I'd play the same way. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
