      $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Holdem
      5 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      UTG ($21.04) 105bb
      CO ($43.50) 218bb
      BTN ($14.06) 70bb
      SB ($21.14) 106bb
      hero (BB) ($31.41) 157bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 5 players) hero is BB 3 3
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.70, 1 fold, hero raises to $1.60, BTN calls $0.90

      I squeezed because BU has a wider range than usual (for his playstyle) and folds a lot to cbets.
      I think i should bet bigger even if BU is not fully stacked - $2

      Flop: 5 7 4 ($3.30, 2 players)
      hero bets $1.80, BTN calls $1.80

      Was not sure about his callingrange. But he folds a lot to cbets and i continued with my plan.
      Should i rather not cbet because his range contains a lot pairs 22-QQ or can i expect some broadways which he would fold?

      Turn: 2 ($6.90, 2 players)
      hero checks, BTN bets $4, hero folds

      Final Pot: $6.90

      Hey chocular77,

      Preflop is not a squeeze. Squeeze is when you 3bet vs 2 or more opponents.

      3 bet as a bluff is sometimes ok in these spots. However your 3bet is too small, should be around $2 as you say. Also villain is not folding enough to 3bets to make a bluff directly profitable. I'd fold preflop.

      It might just about be ok due to villains Ftcbet, but this isn't super high or anything at 20nl. (69%) Calling might be ok, but villain being slightly short doesn't help you set-mine.

      As played you should probably cbet, you have a gutshot and combinatorically villain will have more hands like overcards than PP's.
