      Villain is 3betting 15 and playing 28/14 but only over 250 hands. He has been squeezing in every spot.

      When he pauses - I know he's going to squeeze again - and I decide to backraise and shove any flop when checked to. He calls my 4bet and shoves and I end up calling! :facepalm:

      I've recently read that hands like 33 aren't that good for back raising and I probably should have just set mined. Thoughts?

      Ty

      BB: $20 (100 bb)
      UTG: $21.51 (107.6 bb)
      MP: $33.57 (167.9 bb)
      Hero (CO): $20 (100 bb)
      BTN: $6.56 (32.8 bb)
      SB: $35.65 (178.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 3 3
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.57, Hero calls $0.57, BTN folds, SB raises to $2.48, 2 folds, Hero raises to $7.19, SB calls $4.71

      Flop: ($15.15) 4 8 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $28.46 and is all-in, Hero calls $12.81 and is all-in

      Turn: ($40.77) J (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($40.77) 9 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Hi,

      calling pf and making moves postflop is more profitable than 4-betting pf and then playing for stacks. On that flop I would also not fold, so there call is quite standard.

      Best regards,
