      Hi.

      Preflop: This squeeze is way too loose. If you are squeezing such hands all the time, then you are probably squeezing like 15% of starting hands which is a lot. Anyway your squeeze size is also way too small. You are encouraging both players to call which is never a good thing. Multiway pots are much harder to win. Make it $3 here.

      Flop: I think this fold is a little weak. I'll call the Flop raise and call a shove on a blank turn, hoping that he's on a draw.

      Thanks.

      ahh i don't usually squeeze this size i'd typically make it around $3 but it is news to me that this squeeze is too loose. Will tighten up in this spot then. I think you gave me a roundabout squeeze range yesterday?

      call flop raise and call shove seems a little loose to me considering we're deep

      I think it's fine to squeeze this from time to time but it shouldn't be your default. Meaning that I would require reads that they fold really often to 3bets (70%+), especially BU who's the main guy who's likely to play back at you as compared to SB who is probably folding way more, being OOP and if he calls you can easily own him postflop.

      Postflop: Oh yea, just realized you were deep. probably b/c here and decide on blank Turn. The larger he bets the more i wanna shove over. The smaller he bets, the better calling becomes.
