      You can squeeze here and your cards really dont matter, but calling was a waste of $20. Anything MP3 is shoving (22-10) has you smashed (QQ+, AKo+).

      You only hold 24.42% equity vs that range and called around 36% of the pot. You dont even have correct equity vs a loose shover here (TT+, AQo+ = 34.4%).

      If we estimate MP3 shoves here with 2.5% range (AKo+ QQ+) and folds the rest our squeeze is still okay. 25% of the time MP3 shoves and we lose $7.25, 75% of the time MP3 folds, BU folds and we pick up $4.25, meaning +EV $1.375 per squeeze right there.

      Hello,

      Squeezing is fine here but I would rather prefer to fold to the shove, you are a way too often behind. Such opponent is holding here very often QQ+, AK against you are dominated.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
