      I think, my play was terrible. Right after I pulled the trigger preflop, I thought it was a bad idea to squeeze. The initial raiser had nearly 60 VPIP in 25 hands, but 0 PFR and the caller was short stacked.

      Flop - he donked pot size VERY quickly. So quickly that I was a bit stunned. Thought, this was either a pre-made decision or he hit a monster.

      Turn- he was so quick that I didn't have time to even realise what was the turn card. At this point, I was convinced he has a strong hand, very possibly a set of aces.

      1. Should I just call preflop and play cautiously postflop with the possibly dominated hand?
      2. Is the flop a clear fold? A big part of his range is beating me and he shows lots of strength...

      Thanks and best wishes!

      Hello Dback357,

      Preflop: I'd really be rather inclined just to fold the hand. On those limits the squeeze ain't working. :D They are Calling you down with anything and you of course wont ever know where you stand with your hand postflop. But overall of course it ain't a huge mistake if you had some kind of thinking players with normal stats.

      As played
      Postflop: Guess I'd just lay it down right on flop vs pot size bet. I don't think that we beat a lot of hands here anyways and it's very likely that he is going to continue on turn.

      Best regards.
