      SB: $7.64 (191 bb)
      Hero (BB): $5.34 (133.5 bb)
      UTG: $7.08 (177 bb)
      MP: $1.40 (35 bb)
      CO: $4.44 (111 bb)
      BTN: $4.16 (104 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A T
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.14, BTN calls $0.14, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds

      Results: $0.44 pot
      Hero mucked A T and won $0.44 ($0.30 net)

      Initial raiser:
      VP/PFR/StealfromCO/Foldto3bet/WTSD/hands 33/30/41/86(7)/32/126
      Cold caller:
      VP/PFR/Foldto3bet/WTSD/hands 40/17/67(3)/32/71

      I think this is close. Perhaps unnecessary even. I can imagine the initial raiser to fold very very often, but the second guy might be a problem. Therefore I should have maybe folded the hand as I don't know that much about the second guy and he could be calling me loose there.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Well, I wouldn't say that is so horrible. Since people still fold to squeeze pots more often than against normal 3bets. But usually if you have a rather loose opponent and who doesn't fold that often to 3bets and even is going to showdowns very often then it's rather a spot where we might not prefer to do that. But the ATo is usually perfect for a squeeze.

      Best Regards.
