      Hi,

      Considering that we are OOP here I'd 3-bet squeeze as a bluff preflop. I think we will win a lot more money in the long term by doing that unless we have a specific read on our opponents that will allow us to maximize value postflop (and we might since we have a lot of hands on them).

      As played I'd play it the same. Mp2 rarely has a hand and MP3 has at best a weak Jx (JQ/J9)

      I do have to add some bluffs so yeah that's a good idea.
      I usually call with a hand like that for the SD FD potential however.
      But yeah, long term, not that effective.
      Unless I truly overplay them, and I don't think I'm in the condition to think that atm.
