      Preflop is it better to squeeze or call like me ? I dont want to fold it I think I have good pot odds preflop.

      I hit top pair ,but I dont want to donk ,because my hand is not so strong.
      Preflop raiser checks ,it means he doesnt have a good hand ,because he would protect it against two players on flop like this.

      Btn donks,I called ,I have top pair and backdoor flush draw.

      I dont like that turn card ,because AK,AT,AQ,QJ,maybe 77 are better than my Aj and even some flushes are posible now.

      So it's fold for me.

      Hi TreyKing,

      Preflop: I prefer the call here with our stronger hand although the squeeze should show an immediate profit.

      Postflop: How aggro is the BTN?

      He seems to be aggro and also check how often he bets when a cbet is missed. I think he can try to bluff both flop and turn although his bet size looks more like value,.
