      Hi Urmo,

      I'd ck/fold an Ax flop versus a fishy call to 3-bet, especially since we bet really small and he may not even fold PPs to our bet.

      Hi urmo1.

      Just wondering: what is the thought process behind your squeeze here? Are you trying to isolate the fish (since we know he's going to be calling often in this spot)? If yes, what's the reasoning behind such isolation when he folds only 36% (granted small sample) to c-bet and we have KJo out of position?

      As played I'd also ch/f this flop and any Ax flop (even rainbow) since a lot of his holdings are some junky A9s or something that he's just never folding. I'd be c-betting any low-dry board though as standard (and of course Kxx/Qxx/Jxx).

      Hello ains21
      I squeeze because i have Fold equity preflop and hope to play only with vs Fish postflop.
      If i call preflop then most of time i check fold vs 2 opponents and have difficulties to overplay 2 opponents.
      To you fold preflop?
