      Full Tilt - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $48.11
      UTG: $25.66
      MP: $19.21
      CO: $25.62
      BTN: $28.93
      Hero (SB): $30.40

      Hero posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has A:club: Q:spade:

      fold, MP calls $0.25, CO raises to $1.10, BTN calls $1.10, Hero raises to $4.00, fold, fold, CO calls $2.90, BTN calls $2.90

      Flop: ($12.50, 3 players) A:diamond: 9:diamond: J:spade:
      Hero bets $8.50

      Villains MP is 45/5/5 fish, CO is 15/16/2, BU 21/1/1

      I've decided to squeeze cause I though CO is trying to isolate fish and BU don't have very strong hand considering he just called, and I didn't want to play AQ OOP in 4-way pot. Think this is standard.

      Think C-bet is also standard on this flop but my question is about bet size.
      If I bet small will they raise me cause I look weak and I will be in difficult spot? If I bet big and get called, am I committed and probably beat?

      What to do after my bet here If I get called or raised?

      CO is 15/16/2
      Are you sure about the stats? ;-)

      Hi,

      I'd squeeze to at least 4,50-5,50$ because of oop. You don't want both to call. Contibet is standard on this very drawy board. But keep in mind, that it's a 3-bet pot and you have TP2ndK.
      If you get called you have to evaluate turn if you shove or play c/f.
      If you get raised it depends who raises, but most probably I'd go with my hand and hope.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      I would bet 7$ on the flop and since pot is so big I have to bet/shove if anyone raises. If I get called I likely have to shove any turn card, unless two players call me and turn is really ugly like Td
