      Hello!

      I think this is a good spot for a squeeze because UTG2 will probably be isolating the limper(calling station) with a lot of hands he will have to fold. Once he calls I think his range is probably mostly pairs like JJ-QQ and maybe KK, and AK. I C-bet to get him to fold AK or maybe JJ or something, but thinking about it now this is probably a bad spot to c-bet and the size of my bet sucks too. Should I just be check-folding after I get called?

      Thank you.

      You bluffed preflop and got called, so you should just give up here.

      His range is almost all strong pockets, so cbetting here is burning money.

      I would generally just call pf, but if you want to squeeze I think you should maybe make it 4.5$ or 5$ to give yourself more fold equity
      Postflop c-bet is fine. Although you don´t have equity he would still fold there AQ/AK and you can barrel J, Q, K, A turns
      If you think he would likely not fold there pp-s then also c/f is fine without any equity

      Thanks for the replies!

      If I were to call would I just be hoping for a draw? I think I could easily be dominated and would have to check-fold most times, which is why I prefer a squeeze in this spot.
