      Is this fold too weak? I think this would have been a good spot for a squeeze. Thoughts?

      With 99 I don't like squeezing UTG raisers, their range is so much tighter and even though this guy looks like a big potential fish, I'd prefer waiting till I have some more info on him.

      I however like the squeeze spot. That guy is playing his 11th hand out of 16. Off course it would also help if you saw any of his showdowns. But I think the probability that he's a tight player is less than 5%.

      No Sample on Villains -> No accurate squeezing scenario thus you are more guessing/gambling on it

      Therefore I just muck it; on 100NL+ you should have acquired a big database prior to your play on your new limit
