      I think up to the turn is fine, on the river I would check and probably call MP2, just because of good odds and he hasn't got a full stack so I assume he's kind of bad. Although even that is very marginal. You don't see bad players bluff that size with a missed draw often at all so I think you're hoping to catch a worse Ax hand

      Once CO calls you have to fold imo. You're never good

      Hello nusohaso3,

      Seems to be fine to play this way till the turn but afterwards on the river I'd either block-bet myself smallish to avoid huge bets. With a lot of Ax hands we split anyways so it's a thin value-bet or I am Check/Folding cause I doubt we going to see tons of worse hands here whilst AQ/AK is also possible in their ranges.

      Best Regards.

      Why is squeeze better than call?

      Both options are possible, though OOP might be better to keep the pot smaller if we also have deeper stacks in the play.
