      SB: 38/33 (25 hands)
      3B: 33% (6)


      $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players

      UTG ($38.02) 190bb
      UTG+1 ($20) 100bb
      CO ($20) 100bb
      hero (BTN) ($20.48) 102bb
      SB ($26.76) 134bb
      BB ($25.62) 128bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 6 players) hero is BTN J J
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.60, hero calls $0.60, SB calls $0.50, BB raises to $4, CO folds, hero goes all-in $20.48, SB folds, BB calls $16.48

      Final Pot: $42.16

      I can't really 3B for value against CO.
      Thus i decided to just call and maybe let the rather tagish blinds try a sqz

      The only wrong information here could be the samplesize but the blinds were very aggressive so far.
      Should my 4B always be a ship in squeeze situations even if the 3B would only be ~$2,6?

      Hi Chocular,

      I think that your play is fine given the positions we are in and the information we have.

      The only question comes down to the bet size.

      Considering that villain already 3-bet to 20 BB we can't really 4-bet small to give him the impression that we can fold (if he shoves) and thus look to induce something.

      So given the amount of money in the pot a shove is our best bet.

      Thanks, was really unsure because of this samplesize.
      Obviously i ran into AA which made me doubt if my play was correct.

      Generell question to 4B vs sqz.
      If the hands looks like this:

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 6 players) hero is CO with XX
      2 folds, hero raises to $0.60, BU calls $0.60, 1 fold , BB raises to $2.6

      What would be a good 4B size? (bluffs and value should be same size)

      I sometimes bluff vs aggressive squeezer for ~5.2 but that's very close to commiting myself.
      And i give him very good odds against my value 4B range.

      Should i rather just bluff shove my value and bluff hands?
