      Hey,

      I'm wondering a should have squeezed here?
      The thing is that all villains were pretty unknown... The PFA seemed to play solid on 20 hands. Not out of line and multitabling

      Is calling an option?
      What do you prefer with KJs?

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Preflop: Squeezing is still fine here, if they are also rather unknown and doesn't seem to be like super bad.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, he could still even float you with TT-QQ or whatsoever so I wouldn't say it's standard. I'd most likely turn my hand into bluff-catcher right on the flop cause you don't get called anyways from worse. We might as well sometimes even balance although which isn't needed on NL25.

      Best Regards.

      Thanks,

      I did not think about that option but it seems a better plan.
      But howmany times would you check/call? ones? twice?

      Depends a lot on the opponent, sometimes even 3x if I assume he is capable of bluffing and more bigger value from it. While you might just get value 1 street if you CB but meanwhile could get 3 streets of value from his bluffs/missed draws. (that was a tip for standard pots) but 3bet pots might be different, might just go for just 1 Check/Call.
