      i know, reload to full stack.


      but what do you think of this? i thought he was squeezing me and that if i 3-bet him and show strength on the turn (if it is not a scary card) i could take this down... bear in mind that i was playing pretty tight in that session although i dont really expect people to generally notice.

      was it -ev?
