      I have squeezed KQ as bluff. What should I do on the postflop?

      I have thought about that hand. I think ai on the turn is a huge mistake vs such bet. All draws and bluffs will push here.
      Cbet is good here for balance, I think we will meet him later many times.
      And also I know nothing about his range, so it is a huge mistake to bluff on preflop and after call play that hand as value on postflop.

      Right now the main question for me is there any difference between if I had a spade on the turn and if not.

      Preflop: Your squeeze size is very big. I think his range here is strong, mostly AQ and mid pocket pairs

      Flop: If you bet here, do you think you can get value here? Are you ahead of villain's calling range? You can try using equilab to see how you are faring against a typical calling range. Maybe he calls some PPs with a spade, AQ and sets. My guess is that you are not a favourite.

      Thus I would recommend c/c instead to keep his range wider.

      Turn: I think you must decide now whether to push or fold. You are essentially committed and playability is bad on so many rivers, and it doesn't make sense to c/c the Turn and then fold on a spade when there is only 7 left in the pot and you are getting like 15% pot odds but cannot really call.

      Can we push Turn for value now? I don't think so, I even mentioned earlier that I doubt we have value on the Flop. So I would c/c F c/c T.
