      flat TT/JJ/AQ in such spots instead of squeezing? (since I must fold to a 4-bet and must play OOP in a 3way pot if i get called)

      hard to say without stats/reads. I like 3bet bluffs in general. If he's too loose for a shortie, I just go for it and 3bet. The callers don't really matter imo, except for the dead money and the multiwayeffect, which makes 3betting better. Unless he's tight I 3bet this every time. The reasons:

      In other words. If you flat you play oop multiway, if you 3bet you mostly get an easier pot. And folding to a 4bet isn't nec a bad thing. I wouldn't fold to a 4bet because openraiser is short and the rest is bad if they 4bet. And if you flat you are still up against the hands that dominate you and you won't ever have a clue where you stand.

      Hello,

      I am also squeezing here, very good spot to do that, postflop is standard. Also your post is in wrong section, it's NL100. :P

      Best regards,

      I would also 4-bet preflop since the open-raiser is short. MP3's limp shows his weak, and I think your equity against the shortstack's range is good.
