      Hi,

      Yes it seems very standard. BU should not have much when he checks back flop as PFR and SB should not check twice with a good hand. Bet turn!

      As played I probably bet river as well. BU would not check back flop with a flushdraw so he never has a flush now. The best thing he can possibly have is A2, but he mostly has A-high kind of hands I think. So I make a substantial bet on the river and expect it to work out most of the time.

      ifs

      Thx!
      What would be a good size for the "substantial" river bet? 2/3?

      yeah 65%-80% of the pot seems about right

      I squeeze pre. Is it fine to call ATs, AJs here? Squeeze lower AXs as bluff (semi-bluff) and squeeze AQs+ for value?

      Agree that it could work, but it shouldn't be a standard move.
      Also too few hands from BU to really know his fold to 3Bet or fold to resteal/squeeze IMO.
      And what does the SB cold call with?
      If he has a PP, with that VPIP he might be even calling you, giving you not the easiest of the positions.

      +1

      Not a big fan of squeezing weak hands in general actually, I think people fight back against it quite often. I much prefer calling here.

      But they both seem weak and their ranges have us beat :( . So why not? If you think someone is likely to 4bet I understand it

      Yes but you hand plays pretty bad in a 3bet pot when they call, whereas it plays a lot better in a single raised pot. I don't think they fold pre enough to make it immediately profitable, and I don't think we'll be able to pick it up postflop to make up for it. It's not terrible to squeeze, but I prefer a call.
