      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      MP2 ($12.35)
      MP3 ($3.97)
      CO ($6.34)
      Button ($10)
      SB ($6.32)
      Hero (BB) ($4)
      UTG ($14.94)
      UTG+1 ($10.22)
      MP1 ($12.24)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, J
      1 fold, UTG+1 bets $0.20, 3 folds, CO calls $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.65) 4, 4, J (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.40, 1 fold, CO calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.45) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, CO calls $0.70

      River: ($2.85) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, CO calls $0.70

      Total pot: $4.25 | Rake: $0.28

      Results below:
      Hero had A, J (two pair, Jacks and fours).
      CO had Ac, 7c (flush, Ace high).
      Outcome: CO won $3.97

      I am actually quite happy with the way I played it but wondering if it could have been played better or just differently.

      I just squeeze preflop. I don't like:
      1) playing OOP multiway
      2) Playing a small pot with A:hJ
      3) playing against a wide range hence giving them a real chance to suck you out
      4) People call squeezes often with hands like A2s-ATs hence you have them dominated really hard

      As played, I make it $1 on the River because this 70cents just screams for a raise

      thank you. I need to work on squeeze. I know what they are but can seem to find the right time to use them. That is definitely an area of my game I need to work on.
