      Hi.

      You are 140bb deep which is a little problematic. I like flatting MP's open though when he is such a tight player.

      We can expect SB to be squeezing a fair bit. I prefer making the squeeze size smaller - When you make it 19.50$ it is very obvious that you are rarely bluffing. You could make a smaller sqz size to 16$ and you can do this with some bluffs like 22-66. Making smaller squeeze sizes also allows SB to flat with stuff like KQs/AJs/AQs and play postflop with those hands which is great cos we dominate those worse broadways.

      I think AK is too strong to turn into a bluff. If it's not strong enough to 4bet/call, then I would rather call the squeeze instead.

      In order for villain to jam wider than KK+ here, you need to have some bluffs in your backraising range. And you should do so, cos your image is tight. If you had 44/55 and you made this play, I think this guy would often fold a hand like AQ.
