      Prima, $0.20/$0.40 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $9.28 (23.2 bb)
      UTG: $78.37 (195.9 bb)
      MP: $40.60 (101.5 bb)
      CO: $18.40 (46 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $59.49 (148.7 bb)
      SB: $69.22 (173 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A:heart: J:spade:
      UTG raises to $1.60, MP folds, CO calls $1.60, Hero raises to $6, SB folds, BB raises to $9.28, UTG folds, CO calls $7.68, Hero calls $3.28

      Flop: ($29.64) 7:spade: 6:spade: Q:spade: (3 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $50.21 and is all-in, CO calls $9.12 and is all-in

      UTG 23/18, 60% fold to 3bet(5) and 40% 4bet vs 3bet, 258 hands.
      CO 68/0 25 hands

      I decided to squeeze as a bluff vs UTG and for value vs. CO being IP to both.

      OTF with this SPR, overcard and FD i don`t see another play.

      Squeezing pre looks OK to me but you can actually call IP as well imo. They play very honest multiway and you have position. You win max when you hit and bluff max when you don't.

      I'm not that thrilled about calling a cold 4bet even given the odds. You have to split the pot odds actually. You have BB's range and a sidepot of CO range, both doing quite well vs AJo imo and you won't really be a favourite on any flop apart from AJx, JJx, KQT I think. Ofc, you don't need to be a favourite but I think you just get in money behind always (pre, flop or any other street) too often.

      As played, ofc it's an AI but you flip at best probably which is why I dislike the preflop call. You are probably quite a bit behind vs BB on that flop and you flip for the sidepot.
