      Is it a good spot to squeeze preflop?
      Do we have to fold this on the flop?

      Vs unknown I'd not squeeze here but I think it's not too bad to do so. By the donk bet otf I'd already fold. You basiclyhave nothing except the backdoor FD and even an ace won't help always here. And of course fold ott as played

      Pre both squeeze and call are ok imo. OTF I think you can fold. Another option might be to bluff raise if we think villain usually donks weak stuff. In single raised pots they do that but in a suqeezed pot I'm not that sure.

      Either call or squeeze are possible here with your hand. It is of personal choice and type of villains. You should check what type of villains are still to act. If they are active ones, you better squeeze. If they are passive and noone will squeeze from behind - you can just call and see a flop.
      I think that the call on flop is not that bad. We can improve on later streets.
