      Hi German,

      Preflop: why are we limping this hand IP vs these guys? Mp is very likely on a weak range and UTG seems very loose so simply isolate if you want to play this hand.

      As played the turn fold is fine (and flop raise is ok too).

      Eemm...strictly speaking, it would be a squeeze. So I reckoned that his raise signals some strength, cuz he limps a fair amount as well. Plus KT is not the best hand in the world I guess...

      Yes, it would be a squeeze but I treat min raises as a limp.

      Our hand plays terrible multiway without initiative, especially in a raised pot. So either fold or 3-bet here.

      Okay, nice tip. It should be true against most opponents.

      Bogdan, what sizing would you recommend here? Just x3+1, as we usually do, or we add something on top, since it was only a min-raise, like 50c here?

      Probably between 40-50c here would be fine. It is a bit of a thin raise so you don't actually have to isolate this light, but being on the BTN and MP is not super fishy I think it's fine (we should expect MP to 3-bet most of his strong hands anyway).
