      Hi. Not sure if it is good idea to squezze vs nitty openraiser. My hand is dominaned by BU's range very often, still I would like to isolate myself with SB and I hope to make BU fold his hand. Bu could also cold call from time to time with pockets, maybe KQ. Since both called pre, I guess there's no other option than push. What's your opinion about this? Thx

      Hey,

      VPIP/PFR are averages. He is here unopened on the Button so you should consult other stats like ATS Button to determine his range.

      Therefore I think a resteal is better than a call especially with the SB in play. The Flopplay is self-explanatory I think when you hit toppair

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      His ATS in BU is 17 (6). I'm not sure how I should interpret this because of low sample. BU could either running cold on hands or chooses his hands tightly. Or I am missing something here?

      Well yeah it is variance so in general his range should be >>10% here which makes squeezing profitable. Don't make it too big as you want to fold on his 4bet but don't make it too small either -> 46 cents looks fine
