      The squeeze here is very very bad. I guess I just didn't really notice that his PFR is so low and just saw that it is a minraise, thus I can 3Bet for value but that is not really the case.

      As played though: not even sure if calling his push is that great. Very marginal and even if villain pushes there with a range of 88+ we are sort of breakeven because of the rake. Since his PFR is so low, I indeed should have just folded vs the push at least.

      Against min-raise I would also 3-bet, since more often you see there lower pp-s than TT or some Ax hands. I think postflop b/c is a little better option than b/f, since he sometimes show you 88/99, very often flushdraw and if he happens to have JJ/QQ then I consider it as cooler.
      Ofcourse against tight player you see more often sets and therefor b/f should be best option

      best regards,

      Veriz, what do you think? I certainly don't think that we can squeeze here and neither can we go broke postflop vs his very tight openraising range + him even raising from UTG.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: Well, vs the min-raise you can still squeeze it though it might be not the best idea vs such a nit. Those guys are willing also to trap this way. Vs any other guy it would be standard to squeeze in those spots but vs such a guy it's not going to be always raise for value but rather not so often.
      Postflop: Don't really see myself being far-far ahead here, rather those spots where he may also trap us and have us beat. Rather Bet/Fold it vs such a PFR.

      Best Regards.
