      Known players:

      CO:
      $15.51
      BU (Hero):
      $10.23


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, Q.
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, SB calls $0.25, BB raises to $1.30, CO folds, Hero calls $1.00, SB calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($4.2) 7, 5, 2 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $2.60, Hero calls $2.60, SB folds.

      Turn: ($9.4) J (2 players)
      BB bets $6.80, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $9.4.


      Villain - 24/24/2.3AF/14% 3bet/!! 67% squeeze !!/100% flop & turn cbet (sample 63 hands)

      I wanted to 4bet the maniac's huge squeezing range, but at the time I was scared of the 7/5 nit that called in the SB (which in hindsight is the mistake I made, since if he had a hand that wouldn't fold to my 4bet there, he would've 3bet himself already obviously).

      I didn't 3bet CO's open because he was a 10/7/Fv3bet: 43% nit as well

      hai,

      Villains squeezing range prob isn't as wide as you think:

      (1) CO is tight.
      (2) 3 players in the pot already.
      (3) 63 hands is no sample to draw 3bet inferences from.

      As played you have to fold the flop with BB showing so much strength, and the tight SB still to act.

      Hi,


      I don't play rush all that much but in normal ring games I quite a bunch of more-aggro-than-usual regs that jump at every opportunity to squeeze from the BB, not sure whether it happens less often or more often in rush. It should be more often with no image considerations assuming villains are good and trying to exploit that, could be less often if they're all too nitty.

      So once CO folds, I don't mind jamming over the squeeze or 4-bet/calling it off. If SB had a hand that can stand that kind of heat he'd probably have raised preflop on his own instead of overcalling, most of the time he'll have something like 99 that feels really bad after a 4-bet.


      Hope it helps.
