      Squeezing w KTo OOP is somehow suicide. If he calls, you are well dominated, and your hit wouldn't be good enough most of the time.

      On flop, your cbet sizing was good for 3-bet pot, but the BU w that AF raised, so std fold, even with top-pair, I'd say.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: Rather not, cause you are just putting yourself into a spot where you will have tough tiem to play it, whilst it seems that we are also vs 2 loose guys. Why not just take the odds and call vs them instead? :)

      As played
      Postflop: Check/Fold it, not the best board to CB and whilst you don't even have much fold equity nor even backdoors.

      Best Regards.

      1) Had only one of the guys been tight (e.g. the SB), could this not be a doable squeeze? As in this example: NL10: QJ bad turn check

      2)
      Postflop: Check/Fold it, not the best board to CB and whilst you don't even have much fold equity nor even backdoors.


      Had villain been fullstacked, could double barreling be an option? We still have an overcard + some backdoor SDs – it's not much but still. :pokerface:

      Yes, it would be more realistic to squeeze if at least one would be tight. No, it would be a double-barreling spot for me unless I know the guy a bit more, you try to understand that you have little equity once you get called.

      I meant fullstacked + not as loose. I mean, if villain was a fullstacked tighter guy, this wouldn't be a bad spot for a double barrel with AJ, right? Is KT that much worse here?

      KT is worse of course cause it doesn't even beat Ace high which may float you and of course those Ace high draws for flush.

      CBetting though is fine but then again depends on the opponent as always in poker. :) We can't really hope to continue playing like that "always opponent unknown" -> if it's so then it practically means that you are not paying enough attention on the game and opponents, just playing straight forward and hoping to hit something. :D
