      preflop i decided to squeeze into 2 unknowns which is probably a bad idea. i just see KJ and think it has some decent blockers and i can't call with it.

      CO is 31/19 over 16 hands and BU is 27/0 over 17 hands.

      the flop is interesting since while i do have a decent hand i think it's dominated a fair amount. people love to not go broke pre with AK especially IP so i could be up against that, or even KQ which would suck. that said, now i'm in a squeezed pot with trips so i dont think im ever getting away from it.

      i should have cbet the flop a tiny bit bigger to just jam the turn...

      on the turn once i realised this i decided to bet pretty small so that i minimise my FE when i jam the river/it might even induce something on the turn. is that okay or is it just FPS?

      U have a pot size bet left. Just jam the turn. Top card is paired with two flusb draws and some straight draws like JT. I dont think AQ is folding given how wide ur range is.

      Betting small just makes stacks awkward and ur hand looks so much like kx.
