      Where do I drew the line on calling in BB?

      Should I Squeeze and try to take the pot or call is ok too?

      Hi.

      Your hand has really poor playability so this is a fold. I wont even consider squeezing as this hand is way too weak.

      As played, checkraise the flop. I think the likelihood of one of them betting is higher and we can just maxomise our value earlier on in the hand.

      Thanks.
