      Hey ilidek,

      Preflop squeeze is ok. It's important to realise that against a lot of MP opens you are turning your hand somewhat into a bluff. It's not a big deal though since the expectation might be higher than flatting and playing AQ multi-way. If you were purely against an unknown MP opener though (and no CO), you should flat rather than 3bet for value.

      Cbet flop is ok. It really depends exactly on MP and his stats. You pick a great bet sizing though, in a lot of cases it will be a good play.
