      SB: $13.82 (138.2 bb)
      Hero (BB): $10 (100 bb) 16/14/2.0/5.3/40/51
      UTG: $13.10 (131 bb)
      MP: $7.80 (78 bb)
      CO: $14.89 (148.9 bb) 32/23/2.7/4.2/23/286 Fold to 3bet 17%(6) Call 3bet (50%) Fold to Flop C-bet 45%(11)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J A
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.30, CO calls $1, 2 folds

      Should be squeeze size here be larger?

      Flop: ($3.20) Q Q 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.70, CO folds

      I think he'll fold this flop a lot of times. He'd have 4bet AA,KK preflop Only Q x plays back here and I think rest should fold.

      Besides I could have a Q in my range.

      Preflop: I like the squeeze. There is a lot of dead money in the pot (and we have 2 blockers).

      Size is fine as well.

      Flop: Since our move preflop looked strong there is a chance that villain is simply calling preflop to hit and thus we have a lot of fold equity postflop.

      However if this somewhat fishy/reg player is a calling station we shouldn't bet the flop unless we plan to barrel (as pairs will call and maybe even AK).
