      Hi.

      Preflop: I like the squeeze here, but you should already be planning for future streets. IMO the squeeze size is a little too large and you can't really call with KQo if you get jammed on unless you commit yourself with such a large squeeze.

      I would make it 40 cents here.

      Flop: If I make it 40 cents with only one caller, pot will have 96 cents with 1.40$ left behind. You can opt for a 2 barrel strategy, betting 40 cents on the Flop and shoving 1$ into 1.76$ on the Turn.

      as played, you only have slightly more than a pot size bet left on the Flop, so you should definitely just shove the Flop right away. Bet $1.29 into $1.26 for maximum fold equity.

      Thanks for great analysis!

      Should i use smaller squeeze sizes vs standart 100bb stack sizes too?

      Vs a normal 3bb open with one other player, i would usually squeeze it to 4X (12bb). You can adjust this number based on stack sizes and number of players (maybe 5X vs 3 other players) but as the number of players increase, the multiplier doesn't need to be increased as much.

      For example if there were 4 other players in front of you, i don't think you have to squeeze to 6x, 5.5x should suffice.
