      Hi!

      I just got on this table and I didn't have stats for either of the players, but from the hands I had watched I gathered that the CO was probably a bad player.

      I squeeze with the intention of calling if the CO shoves, which he does, but then the SB calls and really complicates things. At this point I no longer feel that my queens are good. Should I just fold here? 

      Thanks!

      I like shoving pre (when SS shoves and BS calls)
      You are way ahead of SB range and u should try and get it in pre.

      Hi,

      I prefer the shove over the call too. But because you are commited to any flop.
      The range of SB is a real big question. If he was a mid stack fishy it was a easy shove. If he is a reg (he has 100xbb+) he could well be trapping. Which hands will a reg cold call here with all the action??? Only trapping hands imo KK+. So either way he is trapping or is a fish with a bigger stack.

      So without reads its hard. Against the shorty you have a flip + dead money so thats good.

      The Q remains SB. I would shove. Problem with calling is facing OC's on the flop which makes your life hard.

      T.
