      I thought not CB on a bit dry board was too weak.
      Villain's range often have K but is it acceptable play?

      Why do you squeeze? I'd do it if MP has 70%+ foldto3bet.

      I also cbet on such a dry flop... If his foldtocbet% is pretty low I expect him to have QQ/JJ or a random float sometimes. So if that's the case I'd 2nd barrel it 1/2th pot. Without any info I like your line.

      Hi,

      if you don´t want just call pf, then squeezing is fine- you can always go pot control on Axx or even Txx boards or barreling him twice most boards.
      Since that is very good board to call with anything (likely suited connectors would fold or raise) I would prefer barreling turn 5.5$ than c/f

      best regards,
