      Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.40, 1 fold, BB raises to $1, Hero raises to $3, 1 fold, BB raises to $10, Hero calls $7

      Flop: ($20.45) A :club: 8 :diamond: 3 :spade: (2 players)

      It happened a long time ago.
      I guess at NL10 people don't 3bet enough, so I should probably go broke w/ KK+.
      If Villain's range is AK, QQ+, then we are flipping, if I go broke with QQ+, AK.
      Also, he can be 3bet/folding QQ and AK, then I'm f**ked.

      Somewhere I read a material, that I can't be folding more than, if OP's 3bet any 2 cards and makes profit. Say, If I bet/fold 70%, then I'm about 0EV.
      More that 70% = -EV.
      I can probably open 10% range from UTG, 4bet/call 5bet w/ KK+ [~1%], so my fold to 3bet in UTG would be 90%.
      It looks for me that it's better to do that anyway, because people play very F**cking tight.

      Hello Anger86,

      How can it be -EV if you fold? You don't lose any money nor you don't win any money. :P So it's 0 EV. :)

      But about the play pretty standard fold vs the squeeze. Not really worth while we even don't know the opponent and he does it vs UTG. Also your 4bet sizing could be a bit different ~$2,50 should be enough. He ain't going to continue there anyways with a lot worse holdings.

      Best Regards.
