      With what range would you suggest squeezing?
      I think I need to re-read the articles on squeezing...

      Hand #1 Clearly, this hand is too weak -- or is it?
      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (BTN): $4.12 (206 bb)
      SB: $2.19 (109.5 bb)
      BB: $0.79 (39.5 bb)
      UTG: $1.82 (91 bb)
      MP: $2.04 (102 bb)
      CO: $1.32 (66 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 3 A
      UTG raises to $0.06, MP folds, CO calls $0.06, 3 folds

      Hand #2 This one seemed appropriate esp since I haz position
      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (BTN): $2.64 (132 bb)
      SB: $2.82 (141 bb)
      BB: $1.58 (79 bb)
      UTG: $2.51 (125.5 bb)
      MP: $2.14 (107 bb)
      CO: $1.42 (71 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A Q
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.06, CO calls $0.06, Hero raises to $0.35, 4 folds

      Both hands are zoom, so I have no meaningful stats on anyone.

      Does it affect your squeeze ranges if it is a zoom table?
      I try to be tighter since I really have no stats or reads on anyone.

      Hi Vorpal,

      In the first hand we have two guys that don't have a full stack so at least one of them is a fish. Thus 3-bet as a bluff is not ideal and I would only squeeze there with an extended value range (AJs+, AQo+, TT+)

      In the second hand we have a shorter CO so I like our 3-bet to possibly isolate him for value.

      Our reads, if we don't have stats, are their stack sizes and plays.

      Our squeeze ranges should change from bluff/value to mostly value whenever we have players that seem like they are weak/fishy (like in both of these examples).
