      Be careful not to overuse squeezes, especially when you're up against a UTG raiser that seems quite tight. In this situation neither calling (6 way pot with AQo anyone ?) nor folding (we have AQo !) is appealing to me so i don't mind 3bet/folding, you will still make them fold enough 22-99/AT-AQ stuff to show a profit. If you do squeeze, make it $0.6.

      As played I wouldn't mess with that guy's 4bet, there isn't enough money in the pot to justify us shoving against a range that is likely close to AK/QQ+. Some people argue that you shouldn't ever squeeze AQ/TT-JJ unless you're planning to go all the way with it, but i disagree in this spot. Don't ever call the 4bet either, you're not going to flop anything 2/3 of the time and get stacked by better hands almost always even when you do flop something.

      Hope it helps.
