      Hello qMantas,

      It's not actually a squeeze since there was nobody who called after the BTN raise. But overall your play seems to be fine, what your plan vs BTN if he decides to 4bet you? :)

      Giving up the flop vs limp/call is anyways kind of too weak I'd also CB there once and reevaluate on further action, although I'd still CB a bit bigger ~$3, this kind of play really looks weak.

      Best Regards.

      Well, that's good but most likely I'd still Call preflop. :)
