      thou at that moment it was his 2nd 3bet and first sqz at around 60 hands

      Hey Evante,

      Initial flat vs UTG2 is good. Calling vs BB squeeze is pretty close when he's squeezing vs early positions. I would call though - UTG2 has left some money in the pot and CO may also overcall increasing your direct odds to set-mine. You also have position and should get to see a showdown more often - so it's not a pure setmine in this case, BB may still be squeezing light.

      Given the flop texture I'd probably consider raising. If villain is aggressive there are definitely merits to flatting even on drawy texture.

      I would probably just shove the turn for value. Villain is more or less committed and would be unlikely to bluff river with such a small river stack remaining. He also will pay you with a draw here, but may check/fold it on the river.
