      I know squeeze play is meant for a raise and a call, not for reraise and a call but was this squeeze correct?

      Hero: $24.65

      It is fine.
      AK likes to see all 5 cards+ you´re oop, so hard to get more money if you hit A or K for worse hands.

      Thanks for all evaluations you've done for me :)

      Oh and one more question. According to BSS articles, one should fold AK if there was a reraise. Supposing UTG folded after BB's reraise, what should I do then? Treat that as a resteal and push anyways? Or fold as there was no possibility for a squeeze anymore? Or maybe at these low limits pushing a reraised AK is ok in most situations?

      It doesn´t really matter if UTG folded or called.
      I believe that his re-raising range is probably JJ+, AK.
      You´ll beat that with AK and thatś why you should push, since you have fold equity to JJ, QQ and AK.
      If you believe that BB could only re-raise with AA, KK- then it is fold pf, since you´re way behind.

      Squeese play is: when you open someone calls and then third player re-raises.
      If there has limping, you raise and BB re-raises then BB mostly has strong hand, but AK seems too good to fold against regulars.

      When you moive up, then you find, that a lot of players are willing to go all-in with JJ+, AK (AQ) pf, since tables are so much aggressive, but on lower limits if you face 4-bet (or shove) it is almost KK, AA.
