      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to €1.50, Hero calls €1.25, BB raises to €5.50, BTN calls €4.00, Hero raises to €25.00, fold, BTN calls €8.50

      Flop: (€33.50, 2 players) 7:club: Q:diamond: 6:heart:

      Turn: (€33.50, 2 players) A:diamond:

      River: (€33.50, 2 players) 5:spade:

      BB was squeezeing a lot so I was pretty sure he would squeezed if I flat called. Once BU calls should I raise as I did or just called the squeeze to try to trap even more?
      Because my raise looks so strong then.

      yeah, it is fine, although on the SB you can also 3-bet since I think Bu would very often b/c there and stack off with any pair postflop
      Once BB squeezes i like your 4-bet, since BU isn´t folding any more and your hand looks a lot like pp so if he is really aggro he may also 5-bet shove there hand like AQ and definitely QQ/JJ
      I just think you made it a littlebit too big. 16-17$ is enough 4-bet size to look yourself as weak that he would call with worse hands and stack off postflop.
