      Preflop: I think that a squeeze is a must since our opponents are so weak and are calling with very weak ranges both preflop and postflop. But what to do once we get min4bet? Can we call given the great odds despite the poor playability of our hand? I could imagine our opponent doing this with hands that we beat as well – the problem is that I have no idea how big a part of his range consists of such hands.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Squeezing of course is fine but I would definitely lay my hand down vs even the min-raise. There is no need to Call being in multiway pot. Your hand could easily be dominated and never even know where you stand if you hit one of your pairs.

      Best Regards.

      Do you fold such hands that have little implied odds and poor playability (Ax, offsuited broadways) against squeezes in position after another player has called as well? E.g. you openraise from BU against an MP openlimp (fish), the BB (a maniac) min-squeezes and MP calls?

      Yes vs normal squeeze., cause they can often be dominated and you wont really see many flops what are good for you. We are looking for those hands what also have implied odds.

      Of course about the min-squeeze, well depends on the players we have in the hand, what kind of dynamics, how loose they go broke and stack sizes. Might even Call.
