      UTG is nitty, but folds 71% to 3bets. MP is unknown. I decide to squeeze AQ as a bluf. Is this ok?

      As played, what to do now?

      PartyGaming - $0.25 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 23.28 BB
      Hero (SB): 107.8 BB
      BB: 105.4 BB
      UTG: 101.4 BB
      MP: 66.6 BB
      CO: 25.84 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has Q:diamond: A:club:

      UTG raises to 3 BB, MP calls 3 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 14 BB, fold, fold, MP calls 11 BB

      Flop: (32 BB, 2 players) 9:heart: 2:diamond: 7:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP checks

      Turn: (32 BB, 2 players) 9:spade:
      Hero checks, MP bets 24 BB, fold

      Hi Moneystef,

      Preflop: I think that squeezing here as a bluff is fine OOP. However, your size is too large. 12 BB should do just about the same trick.

      Postflop: As played what range do you think MP calls UTG raise and then calls the flop with? I think that we can take one stab at the flop to get him to fold his broadways and small pairs.
