      Hero (BTN): $9.16 (183.2 bb)
      SB: $3.90 (78 bb)
      BB: $5.56 (111.2 bb)
      UTG+1: $4.75 (95 bb)
      UTG+2: $10.96 (219.2 bb)
      MP1: $2.66 (53.2 bb)
      MP2: $5.36 (107.2 bb)
      MP3: $2 (40 bb)
      CO: $3.41 (68.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A J
      4 folds, MP3 raises to $0.15, CO calls $0.15, Hero raises to $0.60

      MP3: 16/14/2.9/412 (VPIP/PFR/AF/Hands)

      Is this a good spot to squeeze?

      Yes NH, super standard squeeze. This hand is too weak to call IMO vs MP open so it's a good hand to use as part of our 3bet range. We may end up folding some stronger hands like AQ even, and if hands like KQ fold we are happy.

      Another plus point is that we may get MP to fold, and play a HU pot against CO who is a huge fish. Then our 3bet would actually be a value bet and not a bluff. Our hand crushes him, we have an easy fold vs him if he backraises with a 4bet, and if we hit TPTK we can easily stack off on most boards.

      And wich other hands could we squeeze in a situation like this?

      If I was in the CU, againste M2 and MP3, could I squeeze the samne way with AJ?
