      Hello guys!

      UTG2 is 16/8 (62 hands) and MP1 68/0 (22 hands).

      Maybe I should squeeze this hand pre flop. If UTG2 4bets only QQ+ I need ~32% equity (squeeze = $1,4) and I have 34,6% equity against this range.

      As played, I keep the weaker range of UTG2 in game but I will find myself in a multiway pot more frequently. What's the best line here?

      And what about the flop? Should I bet or should I check/raise with so many outs (only CO is left to act after me)?


      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, A.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.35, MP1 calls $0.35, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.35, CO calls $0.35, BU folds, SB calls $0.30, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.85) 6, Q, T (5 players)
      SB checks, UTG2 checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets $1.30, CO folds, SB folds, UTG2 folds, MP1 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.85.

      The standard strategy says that if someone in early position raises and someone else calls, we only play AA or KK, and go directly all-in. As played, with the monster draw on the flop you should bet/raise.

      As soon as you squeeze, you can't fold AKs so that's fine

      I dont like creating big multiway pots on micro's so when you call CO,BTN,SB,BB might call as well and then TPTK can easily be overplayed from your side

      If noone coldcalled his raise i would maybe coldcall this IP but now that somone cold calles his raise i would 100% squeeze cuz when u call u give sb +bb pretty nice odds to call with sc and pps etc so it will be a family pot
