      Anon table.

      Preflop I decided to squeeze/fold. Is it better just flatting, even 3way oop?
      On the flop I dont really have good equity, he could have a lot of PPs he wont fold, so I have to barrel at least twice, maybe even on the river... Or just cbet flop, and I can bet any turn broadway as a scarecard, and any with equity, as I have the A?

      Sqz/fold is huge mistake, why would you do that 100bb deep?
      If you aren't happy stacking off then just call.

      I would cbet having Ah, that increase our equity + if someone raise you it will be easier to fold as then they don't have NFD in range.

      Like your turn betting range.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: Squeeze/Fold is pretty standard here, not much to comment. Don't see any reason to flat here whilst being multiway + OOP.
      Postflop: Like your play here, you wont have many worse hands in his flatting range and very often PPs which rarely fold here. Well played!

      Best Regards.

      I think barreling this board with best overcards + bdnfd is almost mandatory. We can barrel lots of cards like any J+ and heart so it looks like have to bet spot to me. Villain has quite a capped range here, one more reason for us to barrel effectively.
