      Hello
      Preflop - plan to play HU pot and im squeezing / But vs lower end fold to 3bet , this plan wasnt so good.
      What you think about preflop 3bet/call/fold?
      If callers are only regulars.

      Postflop - plan to check raise 2x/3x on flop
      But vs ca 4% or 0.5 CC range check raising on that flop is pointless.
      Turn - im calling and hope to hit on River.
      HJ/BTN - 18/14 style
      UTG - 13/9/fold to 3bet 60/EP range 8/8 / CC 3bet 0.5 /4b range 1

      Hello,

      I would probably squeeze as well if the guys were only regs, since there are quite a lot of dead money in the pot already. AQs is on the borderline between calling and folding, but if it was offsuit I'll definitely go for a squeeze.

      As played preflop, I prefer cbetting on the flop. We can get him to fold hands like AQ/AK which might just check back here.

      As played on the flop, check/calling on the turn looks reasonable.

      If he bets the river here what's the plan?

      Best,
      Plamen

      If he pots I am calling even Tx because his hand would be either nuts or very weak, and given your passive line where you show you are very weak he might try to scare you off with pot size bet with any hand. And he has more bluff hands than nuts.
      Anyway I think we should bet river 1/2 pot to get called from his most likely PP here which checks back. IF we sqeeze with AQ, and hit TPTK (basically nuts in 3bet pot), then we shouldn't fold to any bet on river on this board, imo.

      I would usually call any river bet here. His line looks quite weak here, so I would expect us to have the best hand most of the time.

      When he checks, I do agree with @mlatasrb for betting here. We can get called by worse and I don't expect him to have a better hand here at all.
