      I'd like to see the steal- percentage of BU before i decide wheter the squeeze is good, or not(he is very tight).
      As played i'm not sure if i like the cbet either, if the opponents would just call AKish hands preflop and wouldn't raise them at the flop it's good because if you checked they would have bet most oft the time anyway, and by betting you set the price.
      On the other hand it is still a board on which they are likely to give up and you still got 8 clean outs, so a cbet should be fine.

      BU will go away most of the time unless his steal percentage is lowish, so i think the squeeze is good if you don't mind playing heads-up in position against the fishy SB. And you shouldn't really, unless he's a pain in the ass calling station postflop and you can't bluff/semibluff him off anything, in which case you'd prefer squeezing a hand that can make strong top pair kind of hands.

      On the flop, BU shouldn't have many Kx in his range and most of his calling range can't continue to a c-bet on that board with the fish still to act behind him, so it's a good spot to sorta squeeze him out of the pot postflop too.
      The fishy SB is sort of an unknown, but i think that between the times he folds to a c-bet right there and the time you take his stack if you hit and he has a K, this is still +EV.
