[NL2-NL10] NL10 - K9s bluff squeeze

      Pre-flop I go for a 3bet bluf squeeze, UTG folds 4/4 to 3bets, CO 1/1.

      Is it a good idea to squeeze?

      What to do now on the flop? I would like to protect against the FD multiway, on the other hand I may overrepresent my hand when Cbetting.

      Hey MoneyStef,

      UTG may fold a lot to 3bets but no necessarily when he is in UTG. RFI from UTG is a relevant stat to check. This is not a standard squeeze spot and you should only really be squeezing here if UTG is a regular who will give you a lot of credit.

      In this flop situation you can't really go for value. In most scenarios like this (where you bluff preflop and flop a weak top pair) you should use your hand as a bluff-catcher. Check-call flop and check-fold turn vs second barrel. Another option is to bet small on flop(i.e 10bb or so) to protect your hand without over-repping.

      Vs the guy with the shorter stack it might be better just to check/fold flop or bet very small.
