      Preflop: Is this a good raise? I don't know what to do with MSS in these squeeze situations. In retrospect 64 cents should be the smallest that I bet if I follow the rules, but that means my flop C-bet would be even smaller. What is the best thing to do?

      Post flop

      I am against two villains, and a king is likely, so my flop C-bet is bad here I think. Against one villain, is it bad or good?

      Hey Jim,


      Yes I would 3bet preflop as well with my AQ :) , the Flop is really good for you because you block KQ/AK and can effectively represent it as well.

      But since you have a Queen i would check back and shove the Turn, there is not much you need to protect from and they might bluff with worse hands on the Turn :) If they both check again, you can shove it in and expect weirder hands to call you

      Best regards,
      Gerv
