      Is there any advantage of making a squeeze play preflop trying to win a pot or get it HU
      Know on these lower levels , several players will call a raise with AK to see a flop and normally dont like calling with AJ but with two players think there is better value

      the MP3 bet on flop looks week $2 into $6.25 pot , Co put $5 into $8.25 and my raise $10 into $13.25 but with them both calling , they must had hit the flop as well and was hoping the push on turn would take it down

      calling is the worst ... imo is a top spot to squize because mp3 range might be wide even at full ring and he will give up a lot of hands and a lot of times you will get the dead money . i dont like calling at all is the worst option imo . so raise or fold . postflop is played ok i think

      Make it at least 15$ re-raise.
      You could consider squeeze here, if MP3 is loose, but I´d also might call, because of the odds.

      The odds dont compensate the fact that you will be playing the rest of the hand OOP and that you ace is usualy dominated by a better ace like Aq Ak a lot .

      the implied odds are very good against 2 players as long as you can get away from it if a A comes , you are looking to hit the flop hard

      Kaitz think the reraise you said was better as with pot size would be $18.25 but think they were both married to the hand

      I agree with aanty2000, the playability of this hand is not too good, and you don't have position. So, IMO, PF it's a raise or fold situation. I'd fold.

      On the flop I'd lead out myself. As played, I'd reraise more (~$20) and push the turn.

      Postflop you played the hand well, but preflop I don't like your call: assume your opponent has AK: how will you know if you are ahead? You plays a hand which is often dominated OOP without initiative - I think that's not profitable.
