      Hero (BTN): $28.57
      SB: $65.82
      BB: $56.99
      UTG: $28.81
      MP: $26.34
      CO: $27.13

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BTN with A :club: 8 :club:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, Hero raises to $3, 3 folds, CO raises to $6.50, Hero calls $3.50

      Flop: ($14.10) 2 :club: J :diamond: Q :club: (2 players)
      CO bets $9, Hero raises to $22.07 all in, CO calls $11.63 all in

      First session on new limit, noticed that player are extra aggressive (compared to vs NL10Z or was it just scare money?). Felt that CO could juke me there thinking I was squeezing with random hand. Got decent odds (3.5:11.35) and thought raising (if he leads out) or betting myself with lots of flops. Have I overplayed? No info on either player.

      Hello timukasr,

      Preflop: Our plan should be Squeeze/Folding and let it go than make such call-downs vs 4bet. You clearly just can't do it and wont end up having huge profit. If you also have loose players in the hand then I prefer instead the squeeze just Call.

      As played
      Postflop: Oh well, one of the worst boards you could imagine hitting and nor I don't see you having much fold equity even. His range could be capped towards JJ/QQ/broadways here as well and which brings us even towards folding the hand.

      Best Regards.
