      Squeezer is a 19/14 over 348 hands, has never squeezed before and 3 bets 4.7%, generally slighty passive over all, though I expect him to bluff some of the time with worse Ax, just not very often.

      The BTN is a mega whale, 67/16 over 66 hands.

      I think I would fold here if BTN was unknown and call AK and QQ. As BTN is such a fish I thought calling here was fine, especially as I have position on the reg.

      Given the regs range can I consider ever folding the flop?, seems nitty once I've called but I'm not sure how often he even c bets a worse Ax 3 way. As played I expect him to have AA,KK,AK almost all of the time once he bets the turn.

      I don't call this to fold Flop. I like the way you played this, and agree with your general thought process. I think there are many regs who will just cbet 100% with JJ/QQ too cos they don't know what other line to take so you need to call once.
