      utg+2 stats:


      utg+2 opening range from MP is 9%, so i give him {TT+,ATs+,KJs+,QJs,ATo+,KQo} but he would prabably 4bet AA and KK. Now I see i don't really have value bet on flop. I check on turn for pot control (without position.. ;) ) and he bets. I need 27% equity and have 59% against {QQ-TT,ATs+,KJs+,QJs,ATo+,KQo} and 50% against QQ-TT (still 34% against TT+) so i called.
      Should I squeeze preflop without position? What you think about this hand generally?


      Hero shows J:heart: J:spade: (Two Pair, Jacks and Eights) (Pre 82%, Flop 90%, Turn 95%)
      UTG+2 shows T:spade: T:diamond: (Two Pair, Tens and Eights) (Pre 18%, Flop 10%, Turn 5%)
      UTG+2 wins $0.00
      Hero wins $7.78

      Hi Skirhead,

      Preflop: Our 3-bet is mostly as a bluff vs UTG+2 however we can squeeze here for value to isolate the short CO (that seems fishy).

      With two regs in the pot our squeeze would be as a bluff to take down the dead money (I can't see it being for value unless we have dynamics or they are very aggro).

      As played I think that the range you gave him is a bit wide. Considering this is FR I can see villain having TT-KK most of the time (after calling flop) plus slowplayed sets (22, 88, 99) some of the time.

      Since we only beat 6 combos of TT, tie against 1 combo of JJ, and lose to 12 combos QQ-KK along with potentially 9 combos of sets it is very close to a fold.

      6/29 = 21% that we beat
      1/29 = 3% we tie
      22/29 = 76% we lose to
