      thoughts on the squeeze? dont really like playing multiway oop without initiative so opted for the 3bet. also betsizing, should i make it 4.5x? i feel my sizing is abit weak.

      CO has 42% pfr CO and 69%FT3B
      Not really any stats on SB, FT3B 2/3

      FLOP: looking back i think its better to take the free card, i dont think hes folding TT+ vs my 1/2P cbet. what about cbetting bigger here?

      TURN: I think we are in a WA/WB spot here, and think if we fire again we fold out hands we beat and only get called by better. plan was to check this and fire <1/3p on blank river.

      RIVER: i spazzed out here, looking back i have no idea what im thinking, no explanation :f_cry: Just calling is the best play? only problem is, what hands do we beat?

      I always squeeze KQo/AJo/AQo here, I think suited AJ could go either way. Don't mind isolating the 36/24 player who i assume is a bad player.

      Turn play is so dependent on villain. If the 36/24 guy was the SB this would be easy value bet. Vs the 21/14 guy I agree that his PF range is really narrow and weighted towards AQ/pocketpairs, maybe AJs and KQs so I doubt you have 2 streets.

      On the River i don't see how u can fold. You beat KQs and busted draws, sure sometimes you lose to AQ (note that AQ is never folding River) and sets. Sometimes he may turn some TT into a bluff too after seeing 2 overcards and trying to fold out your KK or JJ after you check back turn.

      Raising of course achieves nothing and is really a poor play.

      I would also have 3-bet that spot. Don´t think I need to mix up that much pre-flop and unless players would 4-bet I would rather take down pot or play 3-bet pot with initiative.

      Postflop it should be bet flop, shove turn. You always have fold equity against his small pp-s+ he may sometimes have draws himself. Since you hit your hand on the turn I would likely still bet, since it seems more bluffy than check back. If he does not belive, he would call you down his KQ or QJs. B/c 3-4$ is imo enough with your monsted draw- if I had just AK or AJ I would prefer shoving

      best regards,
