      SB checks, Hero bets $1.42 and is all-in, SB folds

      Hi folks,

      Is it a good idea to 4bet-squeeze with AQ at all? I was thinking that what is good for a re-raise should be also good for a squeeze most of the time. I'm folding on a re-raise, so I'm bluffing, I guess. However, I might get called by something weaker as well, since both villains are kinda fishy.

      Also, what do you think about the sizing? I did it about x3 the 3bet size. When I just 4bet (without any cold-callers), I do it usually up to x2.5.

      I dont like it. My default assumption at nl2 is that people just dont three bet bluff a lot. So ur aq is toasted by nitty ranges. I would just fold unless i had a read that both of them are playing really wide ranges,

      Then calling or four betting will become options.
