      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $13.23
      SB:
      $36.37
      BB:
      $19.92
      MP2:

      CO (Hero):
      $29.38


      Preflop: Hero is CO with 4, 4.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BU calls $0.30, SB folds, BB raises to $1.30, Hero calls $1.00, BU calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($3.95) K, 5, 4 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.50, BU calls $1.50, BB folds.

      Turn: ($6.95) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BU raises to $6.67, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $9.45.


      I called the sqz here because we are over 200bb~ deep so I guess thats OK.

      The other guy that calls is a standard TAG I guess, played 4 tables (ZOOM), no other reads.

      On the flop when the squeezer just checks I think hes on nothing here so I decide to bet small to maybe induce a call.

      When the other guy calls im really confused, I have no idea about his range in this spot as I guess he will 3bet me preflp with AK and such.

      On turn I bet smallish again (not really sure about the betsize here) he almost minrr me, I tanked for a long time and folded putting him on pocket 5...

      Is this too narrow?

      Any thoughts?

      Hi,

      I would not b/f your spot my set. You have no information if player is calling pf AK or smt like 65s or just making some kind of play 88. Since you´re not that deep and you have put in 40% of his stack I would prefer shoving your spot.

      best regards,

      Hi,

      Ye a fold is maybe too nitty here but when i think about it, AK is probably 3bet most of the time by a reg, and even if not when the other guy squeezes I dont see how he just can call as he would have to c/f any missed board pretty much.

      And as I said he played taggy style and 4 table zoom so I don't think he can make that spaztical play here (maybe tilted?)

      Ye I put 40% of my stack in and I pretty much can't fold so I don't see how he can do this play?

      with some reads I think it is possible b/f, but against unknown I´d likely go with my hand. there are enough situations where I can b/f more marginal hands.
