      BU STATS : 18/14/12.4% 3BET / Steal Overall 30% /Steal from BU 29% / FoldTo 3BET 40% /Fold 2 C-bet 57% /218 Hands . SB STATS: 18/12/3,1% 3BET/ FoldTo 3BET 100%/ fold2 C-BET 50%/166 Hands . No any notes on them .

      After i see now my hand don´t think my Squeez is +EV vs this type o players . I was sure SB was weak but playing against a very tight player OOP with Broadway is not so good i think . On the flop i C-bet because i need to balance vs him . Turn is a pretty good card for me and i decided to check because i thought he will fold everything worse and maybe on the river he will bluff . What you think about my line and which notes can i write on him after this showdown ? THX

      Preflop is fine in these positions. You will ofc have a relatively tough spot postflop but the idea is they will have an even tougher one.

      I would personally give up on that flop often and have a check/calling range too in a 3way pot. After you cbet, they never float overs unless it's KQdd, KJdd so it's bet turn for value, shove river for value 100% for me. My plan when cbetting such a spot is to either bet once and give up often or have about 75% cards to 3barrel. Q+ in this spot would be my triple barrel card on the turn, regardless of my holding.
