      Perfect spot for me to squeeze here IMO.

      OR folds and the guy who flatted the first raise 4-bets me. This is complete bs IMO and at best he has TT/JJ. I also think I might have fold equity vs his range so ship it. Thought process okay?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      But the problem is still that his range will definitely consist of those hands as TT/JJ and maybe even QQ if he is rather tighter player. The same goes for AK as well. Doubt that you are going to see many worse Ax hands here. So for us it's at the best a coinflip.

      I'd stick with my plan here without any reads/stats to just Squeeze/Fold and not overplay my hand. Depending on the table dynamic they might even sometimes trap with KK/AA there. One of the good cases:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    62.88%  62.00%   0.88% { QQ-88, AKs, AKo }
      UTG+1  37.12%  36.25%   0.88% { AdQc }

      Best Regards.

      I suppose I trap myself with my own believe that people arent 3-betting QQ/AK. I just perceive the flat-call 4-bet as a super weird line.

      You will see very often people even flatting with hands like QQ/AK. I do pick that even very often. Especially when I expect a squeeze to see which will be towards a lot weaker hand, AT+, KJ+ and obviously maybe even TT/JJ.
