      villain playing 26/20/0 3b over 61 hands

      squeeze pre is probably not the best play, but I am wondering about flop and turn.

      i feel like flop is good barrel card as i rep AK/AA/KK/AKs-AQs
      villain will most likely float flop in this spot in my mind.

      turn: by barreling i feel i fold out his underpairs, weaker fds, etc.
      but i am not sure if barreling is actually the best play....

      i am actually ok with squeezing AQo it plays bad OOP 3way

      turn barrel is bad.
      think about your own balance on this particular turn. you have so many light barrels already with 2 flush draws, as well as some OESDs.

      is he really calling underpairs on the Flop? It's king high which hits your perceived squeezing range of KQ/AK/KK/AA. I think he has many flushdraws and KX hands when he calls the Flop.

      Hello yougotfelted51,

      I'd be towards leaving the pot alone cause I assume him folding very often those boards vs our range. Nor of course the sizing of ours ain't very big either to even make FDs to fold.

      Best Regards.
