      iPoker - $0.20 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: 172.9 BB
      Hero (BB): 168.5 BB
      CO: 164.45 BB
      BTN: 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:heart: J:diamond:

      CO calls 1 BB, BTN raises to 4.5 BB, SB calls 4 BB, Hero raises to 17 BB, fold, fold, SB calls 12.5 BB

      Flop: (39.5 BB, 2 players) K:club: T:diamond: A:heart:
      SB bets 29.6 BB, Hero raises to 59.2 BB, SB raises to 155.9 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 92.3 BB

      Turn: (342.5 BB, 2 players) A:diamond:

      River: (342.5 BB, 2 players) 6:club:

      SB shows A:spade: 9:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Aces) (Pre 57%, Flop 3%, Turn 23%)
      Hero shows Q:heart: J:diamond: (Straight, Ace High) (Pre 43%, Flop 97%, Turn 77%)
      SB wins 0 BB
      Hero wins 332.5 BB

      CO 166 hands, 59/10, fold to 3bet 70
      BU 1k hands, 28/22, fold to sqeeze 50%.
      sb 22 hands 63/21

      I am not sure if sqeeze, and size is appropriate here? I want to play against fish CO or SB, and expect BU to fold.

      On flop is it ok to min raise, I expect him to have two pair or top pair and draw, so I dont want action killer on turn to come.

      Preflop is fine in terms of line (squeeze) but your sizing is too big imo. 14BB should be enough here quite often. Maybe 15 but 17 is definitely overdoing it.

      Postflop, the flop can't be better than this for your perceived range which makes it ridiculous that he leads any hand. It's a spot where you have to make a guess so to speak of your opponents level:
      - he hit this board, I cannot bet here ever (but he bet so he is not on this level)
      - I have something, I don't put you on AK like fish do so eat this bet.

      Given that he is second variant I like your raise. Sizing is also fine. You have to choose a size to shove turn when called and this was good.
