      fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.75, MP1 calls $1.75, MP2 calls $1.75, fold, BTN raises to $6.50, Hero?

      Would you call? There is some nice dead money in pot, but I'm utg and btn seems to be solid so his squeeze should be strong

      I think it's not a call but a push :)

      Hey jenoc,

      what's your UTG raising range? AQ+/TT+?

      Unless you are way looser I think BU will squeeze AQ+/TT+ at most or even tighter and against that range you are break even or -EV if he is tighter, so I just muck AQ preflop.

      If he had A9o then he overplayed his hand and you can make a valuable note on this player and go broke with all the hands you raised with against him.

      However, from average unknowns you cannot expect to have so wide ranges and I think you should fold as I wrote before. Specially players who know how to squeeze won't squeeze light against a shorty with 5% PFR in UTG. So, I like to fold without the read he is capable of overplaying his hands.
