      Both are regs

      SB is a tight/not great reg
      22/16
      3bet 5.4%
      only 3betting MP 3.5%
      5bet preflop 27%

      BB is a good LAG
      30/24
      squeeze 7%


      How wide would you squeeze/fold here? How would you size your 4bet?

      I think SB is only 5betting here with KK+


      PokerStars - €0.50 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: €143.50
      Hero (UTG): €50.00
      CO: €51.61
      BTN: €68.20
      SB: €50.00

      SB posts SB €0.25, BB posts BB €0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: €0.75) Hero has X.X

      Hero raises to €1.50, fold, fold, SB raises to €5.00, BB calls €4.50, Hero raises to €15.00, fold, fold

      Hero wins €15.00

      Hi

      I would flat QQ JJ here. I think you can consider squeeze folding AKo vs SB. I dont think we should squeeze any lighter vs such a tight player.

      As for betsize u can make it smaller to 13.

      Don't you think that is leaving a lot of money on the table?

      SB is 3betting 3.5% = JJ+,AJs+,AKo

      Let's say he is only 5betting KK+

      So he has 12 combos he will 5bet with and 36 combos he folds.

      So he's going to fold 75% of the time. I'd want to 3bet him with AA as the only value hand, and then a crap load of bluffs.


      Say he is 5 betting QQ+ AK+, which I assume you are thinking of.

      34 value 5bet combos 14 folds

      Your 4bet/shove range is AKs and KK+?
      How many hands does AKo block? 1 from AA, 1 from KK, 1 AKs, 5 AKo ......1 AQs, 1 AJs

      So goes to 26 combos of 5bet to 12 combos of folds. So nothing is worth squeeze/folding here?

      I suppose if you are squeeze/going with the hand. Then it is barely ok to do this with AKo as you have 39% equity verse his shove range. But squeeze/folding AKo or anything doesn't appear to be profitable?

      Ok im going to change what i said. Just flat AKo and AKs as well. IF we are not willing to 4bet/broke then we should not 4b a hand as strong as AK. And 4b squeezing doesnt make any sense when sb and bb are really strong here.
