      Poker Stars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed) - Poker Stars Converter Tool from

      MP3 ($10.26)
      CO ($12.38)
      Button ($9.05)
      SB ($10.15)
      Hero (BB) ($10.15)
      UTG ($21)
      UTG+1 ($15.76)
      MP1 ($4)
      MP2 ($11.43)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, Q
      4 folds, MP3 bets $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 2 folds, Hero raises $1.60, 1 fold, CO calls $1.30

      Flop: ($3.85) 6, 10, 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, CO raises $5, Hero raises $5.95 (All-In), CO calls $3.45

      Turn: ($20.75) 7 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($20.75) 7 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $20.75


      Here I squeezed on the flop, because they both looked weak, and I thought that they fold most of the time, and I don't like calling because QK is hard to play OOP aggainst 2 ops.

      I continued my aggressive approach, and I would have had to call his raise, but then I would be commited to call on the river too so I shoved.
      I put him on QQ+, AK, and with that I have 40% equity, if I stack of I need 41%.
      Do I have any fold equity on the flop? Is it ok as played or should I just check call for implied odds?

      MP3 is 23/16/1.9 after 200 hands, CO is 23/8/2.3 after 136

      I'm not sure why you are putting him on AK/QQ? He did not 3bet or 4bet preflop so I think he has a mid pair or AQ more often in his preflop range

      Preflop: His range here is 77-TT, AQ, maybe KQs and AJs. 4X seems like a normal squeeze size but I think you can squeeze smaller to 1.40 or 1.50 since the initial open is already so large at 4bb.

      Should we even squeeze though? I would squeeze KQo by default. KQs is more of a call, but if you have reads that they fold or call too much (and hardly ever 4bet) then I think this is a more reasonable play.

      Flop: Your cbet size is a little too large. I would bet 1.80 here and push the Turn. Your normal cbet sizes should also be smaller too to enable you to bluff more cheaply. And when he raises we should definitely push here. We are crushed by AJs and TT, but we are doing fine vs all other hands.
