      Hero (BTN): $2.04 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 12, 3B: 2, AF: 3.9, Hands: 6755
      SB: $2.80 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 8, 3B: 0, AF: 2.0, Hands: 26
      BB: $0.88 - VPIP: 67, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 3
      UTG: $2.02 - VPIP: 50, PFR: 50, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 2
      MP: $3.12 - VPIP: 37, PFR: 19, 3B: 9, AF: 1.0, Hands: 59
      CO: $2.52 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 5

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BTN with A :club: K :diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.06, MP calls $0.06, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.24, 1 fold, BB calls $0.22, UTG calls $0.18, MP calls $0.18

      Flop: ($0.97) A :diamond: Q :club: 8 :spade: (4 players)
      BB checks, UTG bets $0.02, MP calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.64, BB calls $0.64, UTG folds, Hero?

      PF: Raise for value since I can start building a big pot against a dominated hand. I don't know that my opponent's are tight enough to fold dominated hands.

      F: No player before me has shown strength.

      I bet 64c since I will expect to get an easy all-in on the turn.

      The passive MP basically check/raises but the only hands which beat me are:
      {AQ, (A8o), 88}
      don't expect him to call pre-flop with Q8, QQ or AA.

      What range would you expect the MP to be check/raising with in this spot?

      Considering we are getting nearly 4:1 pot odds to call, what would your action be?

      Hello,

      You've mistaken the forum - this one should be posted in the BSS section.

      Preflop squeezing is definitely good and you can make it $0.26-$0.28.

      On the flop I'd bet around $0.54 here.
      When MP raises I would most likely go broke here. Given the fact that this is NL2 and people tend to overplay top pairs in 3bet pots I think our hand is good enough to stack off.

      Best,
      Plamen
