      Hi Evante,

      Preflop:That's a very small squeeze from CO considering the open raise+call so I would prefer to just 4-bet there and get it in. Calling is an option if the other two guys are fishy but we don't really know that.

      This is a scenario where someone squeezes small two opponents so I feel that the value of a 4-bet/call is greater than in an average spot where lets say someone 3-bet UTG and then we 4-bet.

      I feel that a smaller squeeze has a higher chance of being a bluff and because it is a squeeze there's a lot more dead money in the pot to fight for and we will collect the pot down a lot. The value of the 4-bet doesn't come only from stacking off but from collecting that dead money.
