      I heard against loose villain, I should shove directly instead of standard squeeze.
      And I thought call minraise showed weakness so against MP3, I should have been ahead..
      What do you think?

      I think I shove more preflop when there is more deadmoney in the pot. I mean he just minraised preflop! You risk so much to win $1.75 with K:dJ

      I am fine raising to $4 and shove any Flop but I think you get too many flips/way behind situations as a result of your shove.

      What I say in one thread does not mean that you should apply it in every situation as my judgings are based on that context your present to me

      With comparison, I can notice where the context is different.
      For this, I have a room to pay tuition :f_cool:

      ok, I'll keep in mind that without more deadmoney, direct shove instead of normal squeeze is not good plan!
