      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , K:spade:
      MP2 raises to $0,90, MP3 folds, CO calls $0,90, BU calls $0,90, SB folds, Hero raises to $4,75, MP2 folds, CO calls $3,85, BU folds.

      Flop: ($11,45) 5:heart: , 5:club: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Turn: ($11,45) 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $12, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      weird play but i just thought i have to lay down my ace if he bets (he is comitted) even if he only got an ace which would be a split. So i bet myself.

      Final Pot: $11,45


      Question:

      Is this size ok ? 3x raiser + 1per limper + 0,5 for beeing OOP
      Or should i make it smaller in generell to make my bluff squeezes cheaper. In this situations i would never bluff squeeze but if i play against 2 competent players should i change my squeeze size?

      How big should a cbet in a 3B pot be in generell? More towards 1/2 potsize since STP ratio is smaller?

      Hi,

      1) If you don´t want to see flop then 5$ is fine. I´d personally would make it 4$ that might easily get called by worse broadway hands. 17/13 woudl likely raise/fold and I think I get hu a lot of times 63/13 player. If we both hit Ax I can stack him postflop opr if he calls with wide range then half potsize bet should also do job most of the times

      Or should i make it smaller in generell to make my bluff squeezes cheaper. In this situations i would never bluff squeeze but if i play against 2 competent players should i change my squeeze size?
      - if there are more players you also make your 3-bet larger

      How big should a cbet in a 3B pot be in generell? More towards 1/2 potsize since STP ratio is smaller?
      - if board is drawy I tend to bet a little more, more like 2/3 potsize, but generally yes 1/2 pot is fine.
      Hand nr 2: prefer shoving flop to not give him any free cards that might cost your stack .

      Making it smaller so a call from loose player is more likely is a good tip.
      But lets assume all players in hand1 would be some kind of 17/13 players who fold to 3bs alot.

      How much should i raise if i make a squeeze with 87s?
      How much should i raise with AK?

      I think i should raise the same size so my opponents don't get any reads on me.
      With my 87s i want as much foldequity as possible (larger size) but if i do it often it could get expensive (lower size).

      Here i have another example:


      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $31,75
      Hero:
      $25,2
      MP3:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T:diamond: , 9:diamond:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0,90, 2 folds, SB calls $0,75, Hero raises to $3,50, MP3 calls $2,60, SB calls $2,60.
      ...

      MP3's Fto3B = 67 (9).
