      Known players:

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      SB sqz = 9% (was higher when i had a little bit less hands)
      Fcbet = 90%
      Tcbet = 60%

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A:spade: , K:club:
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $1,75, CO calls $1,75, BU folds, SB raises to $7,50, BB folds, Hero calls $5,75, CO folds.

      When i played this hand i thought SB has a bigger sqz range so i just called as some sort of trap.
      Is such a play fine against a big squeeze range if it's very likely that an opponent folds to a 4B? Or should i just 4B/call to collect the money already in the pot.

      Flop: ($17,25) Q:heart: , Q:club: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $9,25, Hero calls $9,25.

      Turn: ($35,75) 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $15, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $35,75

      Hello chocular77,

      Don't like the flat preflop, just for the given reason that he has so high CB frequency postflop and it will be difficult to overplay him. Most likely I'd just 4bet myself and then reevaluate further actions.

      Best Regards.
