      Hey,

      Both BTN and BB are regs!

      52% BTN open. 56% foldtoresteal, 0/5 foldtocbet (23/20/350h)
      BB 25/20/330h sqz 19%

      Can you give me you 3bet range?

      I suppose you don't have a flatrange... Allthough wouldn't that be good in this spot where BTN doesnt like to fold pre or post? And BB only resteals 5% in BB. So can't we call hands like AT, QJo, QK?

      19% squeeze is quite high so I would usually 3bet/fold preflop here.

      BU folds > 50% of the time when you 3bet to begin with and you win preflop. You will also have equity postflop.. Just because he doesn't fold to cbets, it doesn't mean he goes to showdown often.. What is his WTSD and W$SD? A lot of people float flops because that's what the cool people do and fold turns in a bigger pot or get to river with bottom pair and fold to your shove.

      Thanks again.

      So our 3B range is something like:
      A2s+, ATo+, 89s+, 8Ts+, KTo+, QJo

      Our callingrange:
      77-TT, sometimes a trap vs BB like AQ

      ?

      With that BU I would 3bet everything I want to play but the next way to adjust is indeed to use something like the ranges you describe, including some call/back4bet but not only AQ, have KK, AA sometimes too.. maybe say the red AA, KK and AK or smth like that. Depending on dynamic, flat more traps than that is possible but just suggesting one of the possible ways to select your flatting premiums.
