      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      MP: $50.75 (101.5 bb)
      UTG: $53.39 (106.8 bb)
      BTN: $50 (100 bb)
      Hero (CO): $89.58 (179.2 bb)
      SB: $22.60 (45.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q Q
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP calls $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, BTN raises to $7.50, 2 folds, UTG calls $6, MP raises to $50.75 and is all-in, Hero raises to $89.58 and is all-in

      UTG is a reg: 17/14 UTG open 12, foldto3b OOP 50, 4b 9,1, 2,9k hands
      MP is a reg: 25/23 3b IP 16,1, 200 hands
      BU is rather unknown, but seemed to be reggish: about 25/20 3b IP 30 over 50 hands

      I thought that 3betting vs UTGs tight range isnt that profitable, also I had this so far aggressive 3bettor behind me. BB was also kind of aggressive squeezer.

      But now when facing a lot of action i thought:
      BUs squeezing range is wide as far as I know
      UTG probably doesnt have AA or KK, because playing maybe multiway pot OOP seems not too good idea.
      A little bit more worring is MPs shove, because he could thing like I did and maybe have KK+ sometimes, but he should have here QQ, AK or TT- JJ more often.

      Does my thought process makes sense or should I just fold it and assume that somebody has me beat here?

      Hello kosmonaut111,

      Thinking process is very good, though as you catch yourself the point already with understanding that there are aggressive squeezers on the table, what makes you think that MP can't think the same way? That might even make me to fold my hand.

      Though of course also depends on the dynamics we had there, how much has been MP been playing and etc, could also be of course that he ends up having there something like JJ or whatsoever. But I am not really sure if it's going to happen that often, more I'd expect him to pick such a line with QQ.

      Best Regards.
