      I need to call 20% of pot preflop.
      MP-11/8/2.3/100h/ MP pos - 12/12
      What you think about preflop call vs squeeze?
      And 4bet call?

      Hero (BTN): $26.61 (106.4 bb)
      SB: $26.51 (106 bb)
      BB: $25 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K J
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, Hero raises to $3, 2 folds, MP raises to $6.50, CO calls $5.75, Hero calls $3.50

      Flop: ($19.85) 3 T Q (3 players)
      MP checks, CO bets $6.75, Hero raises to $20.11 and is all-in, MP folds, CO calls $8.60 and is all-in

      This is a fold preflop for sure. You are dominated by MP's opening range, let alone his 4bet range. If you hit a K or J, you are dominated by AK/AJ, not to mention that his range is so heavily weighted towards overpairs.

      If he was looser, like 18/15, then I would like the squeeze, hoping that MP folds and we can isolate the super loose fish and go for max value. But here I just think MP is almost never folding with a range that has KJ crushed. This pretty much defeats the purpose of a squeeze, which is to take down the pot immediately.

      I don't think there's much to comment on post-flop. We virtually have no fold equity on the Flop, yet we still need to hope he folds, as we are going to be committed on probably 100% of turns anyway.
