      Howdy,

      Preflop is fine, I like squeeze much more than anything other.

      I think Flop bet is ok given we have two overs+BDFD as by checking we are giving up and giving up sucks.

      When he raises we theoretically get needed odds, but I'd say giving up is ok - we will face Turn barrel a lot and without any improvement on Turn we will probably get ok odds again and talk ourselves into calling and at the end own ourselves against set when we hit our A/K. So bet/fold usually is the best option against unknowns although if you think he bluffs often enough calling is reasonable as we beat all kind of draws/Kx/Qx/Jx hands.

      Good luck!

      Hello 7ColdCoffee7,

      A lot of SCs hit, PPs will continue and we likely making them to fold some broad-ways. Therefore while being in multiway pot I'd basically just Check/Fold it while I expect very often someone of them at least having the PP here in 3bet pot.

      And as well my 3bet would be bigger, at least $0,75. And as played rather Bet/Fold, you can't really Call it profitable in long run and even if you hit our TP or whatsoever you will never know where you stand with it.

      Best regards.
