      I shoved so I would gain maximum fold equity against the BB, good play?

      Hello,

      Preflop: I am not really sure if it's profitable to squeeze such players as CO is (VPIP: 58), I would rather prefer to fold here.
      Flop: I am not really sure about shoving here, PPs could be BBs range and he could easily have an OP here or a SET. Looks like bad move to me.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      squeeze here is ok i guess (not really in my playbook) even against CO because lets face it even if CO calls A8s is probably ahead of his range anyway Hasenbraten most recent video had a spot like this where he squeezed with A10os arguing that even if the fish calls A10 is ahead of his range.

      Personally i think flop is standard, you can't fold, calling is meh, which leaves you with a shove, you can't spend your life worrying about sets in 3 bet pots and an overpair like 10-jj you have fold equity against and even if they call you are flipping with tons of dead money in there.

      I´m also always hesiteting about calling and shoving my strong draws, but since you were 3-better, then BB would fold there anything other hands, than set and he doesn´t have set there too often.
