      Pretty much impossible to put villain on a hand without at least a stat read. Call-call is normally a PP but could be anything if villian is a loosey limper station.

      $4.50 squeeze preflop? Thats a little excessive. Even if we triple and add for every cold caller we only get to $3.60

      With so much in the pot and the CO just feeling like a passive passive loosey limpy calling fish I am taking a passive check-call line with my overcard flush draw on the flop and turn (per odds / implieds). We have a strong draw but why donate to the fish if we miss, especially if the fish is the sort to just call-check? Play for stacks AFTER we complete our monster.

      Hello,

      Preflop: I am raising less, ~$4.

      As played
      Nice hand, well played. I guess he is holding A5. :P

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Pre-flop:

      Shouldn't the point of a squeeze be that I get no callers, or that I can represent AA or so?
      I will always raise higher then standard when squeezing.

      The point of a squeeze is to take the money preflop but you have about the same fold equity if betting less. I would make it about 4$ too. You will get the same result for less money so why not ? :P

      I would c-bet less in 3-bet pot , about 6$ just to make my cbets when I have air cheaper and shove turn also. Looks like a PP to me , but could also be something like A5 clubs or even AA if he`s weak :P

      When squeezing you should bet what you would bet as if you were making a standard 3bet with QQ+ AKo+. Otherwise you will fall into a readable line for anyone who cares to notice.

      This is one board when you can consider shoving flop to maximize your fold equity, although he´d likely call anyway with any pair a lot of times.
      Turn is fine.
