      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      CO: $10.00 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 13, 3B: 4, AF: 2.2, Hands: 807
      BTN: $10.30 - VPIP: 62, PFR: 7, 3B: 8, AF: 1.2, Fold_vs_Flop_cbet = 33% from 12 hands in non 3bet pots, Hands: 68
      Hero (SB): $10.96 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 14, 3B: 4, AF: 3.8, Hands: 138914
      BB: $37.85 - VPIP: 51, PFR: 19, 3B: 4, AF: 6.8, Hands: 101
      UTG: $10.41 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 15, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 20
      MP: $4.53 - VPIP: 12, PFR: 12, 3B: 4, AF: 2.8, Hands: 305

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, K.
      MP2 raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BU calls $0.40, Hero raises to $1.60, 2 folds, BU calls $1.20.

      Flop: ($3.7) A, A, T (2 players)
      Hero ?

      His fold to cbet is 33% in non 3bet pots [small sample to justify % in 3bet pots :) ].
      I'm having some trouble here. He is probably going to float often.
      So, it's check/fold?

      Hello Anger86,

      Not the greatest spot to squeeze in first place actually, as long you have a very loose opponent in the hand. ;) But as played I would just Check it.

      Best Regards.

      I don't get it. I he is playing ~60 % hands = limping and calling.
      Then, for example, continuing ~20 % hands = calling 3bets.

      Then I'm in a big pot vs. very dominated range, which probably will call down
      with TP and weak kicker.

      Where is the catch? Do I squeeze vs. loose opponents, who can fold to cbet more often?

      Thanks.

      Not that we will be dominated but it's hard to get rid of the guy postflop while he most likely continues with a lot of hands being IP.

      We squeeze mainly for value vs loose opponents and rather IP. Especially if he has low fold to CB.

      I thought we dominate, mostly. :)

      Yes, I agree, it's very hard to get rid of him.

      When I'm IP, should I cbet there? For example, he calls on the CO and I squeeze on the BU?
      I'm not sure, if he will fold more often when we cbet IP vs. OOP.
      Although we will have an information that he checked to us.

      So, I better squeeze IP, with this hand and play fit or fold post-flop.

      You could consider CBetting while you have the position to secure free card for river and maybe even gain fold equity.

      This got me thinking about my squeezing range OOP vs. very loose players.

      So by this I divide my range in following parts:
      - calling,
      - 3betting.

      Calling = JJ-22 for setmining.
      squeezing QQ, AK for value.

      I'm left with AQ, AJ, KQ, ATs, which will have a pretty good equity vs. loose players.
      Are these a call here?
      Fold some of them?
      I suppose, I would still squeeze AQo, then flat AQs (50:50 flat vs. squeeze), because it plays better OOP than off-suit.
      Now I'm not sure what to do with other hands: AJ, KQ, ATs.

      PS. We can talk about this in a coaching too, if this can take more to explain. ;)

      Most likely with KQs you can still Call there and even play postflop but with KQo either squeeze or just fold it. Even vs loose opponents it's still for me rather Squeeze or fold cause you make too many mistakes postflop with it. Other those ATs+ type of hands can be even called.
