      PokerStars - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP: $23.90
      CO: $43.78
      Hero (BTN): $33.56
      SB: $26.86
      BB: $39.02
      UTG: $14.46

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has K:spade: A:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.75, Hero calls $0.75, fold, BB raises to $3.25, fold, Hero raises to $12.00, BB raises to $39.02 and is all-in, Hero calls $21.56 and is all-in

      Flop: ($67.97, 2 players) 8:spade: 9:diamond: A:spade:

      Turn: ($67.97, 2 players) J:spade:

      River: ($67.97, 2 players) 8:club:


      Blinds had 12 and 17 3bet, so I decided to give them the perfect spot for a squeeze. Is this OK even though we are more than 100bb effective stacks? I made the 4bet big enough to shove flop - is that sizing appropriate?

      Hi,

      After you make it 12$ you´re not really bluffing there, so instead of 12$ I would prefer making it smaller 9$ to give him impression I might fold to his shove

      best regards,

      So you plan on playing turn then? If he just calls?

      Hello awishformore,

      I'd most likely also 4bet it a bit smaller 3x.

      So you plan on playing turn then? If he just calls?

      You mean that we wont be able to put him all-in on the flop? I wouldn't really look for that anyways, I'd rather make some smaller bets to induce him bluff. If you shove on such a flop then I don't really see many worse hands calling you.

      Best Regards.
