[NL2-NL10] NL4 6max AJo SB squeeze play

      CO and BTN both raise a lot of hands so here I opt for a squeeze play, as a bluff. If I'm called I'm probably behind a lot and continue accordingly. Is this a good spot for this play?


      OnGame - $0.04 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (SB): 100 BB
      BB: 100 BB (VPIP: 21.05, PFR: 15.79, 3Bet Preflop: 11.11, Hands: 19)
      UTG: 307 BB (VPIP: 11.54, PFR: 10.00, 3Bet Preflop: 4.65, Hands: 130)
      CO: 167.5 BB (VPIP: 16.98, PFR: 15.09, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 56)
      BTN: 144 BB (VPIP: 27.27, PFR: 18.18, 3Bet Preflop: 10.00, Hands: 23)

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has J:club: A:spade:

      fold, CO raises to 3 BB, BTN calls 3 BB, Hero raises to 13 BB, fold, fold, fold

      Hero wins 10 BB

      Hi kiwicoach,

      Preflop: yes, this is a great spot for this. CO is likely opening a lot and BTNs range isn't too strong.

      On top of that your line is strong and your bet size is larger so it's hard for them to do much. I would normally advise 12 BB here though (save 1 BB when you get called or 4-bet).

      On top of all of that you have 1 blocker, to the A.
