      BB: $4 (100 bb)
      MP: $1.72 (43 bb)
      CO: $1.85 (46.3 bb)
      BTN: $4.37 (109.3 bb)
      Hero (SB): $4.08 (102 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9 9
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.14, Hero calls $0.12, BB raises to $0.52, 2 folds

      Results: $0.42 pot
      BB mucked and won $0.42 ($0.28 net)

      Our opponent on BU has the following stats:
      VP/PFR/AF/3bt/StealfromBTN/hands 37/31/10.0/12.5/88/67
      The BB, however seems like a decent player.

      1) The question: is a call here ok or maybe we should prefer a 3bet because our opponent is loose and might even make a call with worse?
      2) Does the fact that BB seems like a decent player influence our decision and how?

      Hello Avatars91,

      If you have squeeze-happy guys behind you then rather 3bet yourself than Call. Since the higher you go the more likely in those spots people will squeeze.

      Best Regards.

      Does that mean we should also 3bet small pockets instead of calling with them if there are good players behind us?

      Is there a stat for squeezing?

      Yes, definitely. If they are 3betting/squeezing a lot then rather 3bet yourself.

      Is there a stat for squeezing?

      Yes there is. :P Called Squeeze. For me it works when I press on 4bet stat during the game if I use HEM1, not sure about HM2. Still haven't started using it. :D
