Hello!

No reads on villain.

On PREflop, after his call, I put him on high pocket pairs JJ+, suited connectors QJ+, suited one gappers KJ+

On flop I cbet high for value and protection. After his reraise - he could have overpairs (JJ+), suited connectors and onegappers of clubs (QJ+; KJ+); one blink I had a feeling of QJ, but I felt already attracted to the pot and I still had some outs.



1) Was my squeeze amount high enough?
2) Was my cbet justified and was it high enough?

Your squeeze was a little bigger than I'd make it, but it's correct if you multiply the open raise by 3 + (number of cold callers). (3+1+1)*0.08 = 40c.
This pot-sized raise should usually win the pot or get your heads up. What it also does is set a stack to pot ratio that commits you to stacking off post-flop; The pot is big and your remaining srack is relatively small.
I'd be slightly concerned that the UTG villain is trapping with AA, but QQ probably calls too. The flop is very wet. JJ flopped an OESD, but you've got an overpair and you're beating QQ and AK, so getting it in looks good to me.
Villain made a terribad pre-flop call with QJs. Most of the time he's losing a bunch of money calling your 3-bet, as when you 3-bet an UTG open, you should always have KK+ and AK. It's brutal that he flopped the nuts.

I don't really see anything wrong with this hand. Perhaps against a 4x open and 2 callers you could bet a little more, I'd go for about 0.52 but that's just person preference I think. I'd say the OR is calling pretty light considering he's facing a 3-bet from the SB against 3 opponents and he's not even closing the action. On the flop, it is a bit of a wet board but there's no reason to think you're behind yet, a c-bet of that size is perfectly justified to a) get value and b) protect your hand, I like it. The villains shove is a bit of a "wtf" moment but with that much in the pot and considering the range of hands he should be on I think the call is fine. I'm only really considering sets to be ahead of us. It's just in this case the opponent was a bit looser pre and made a bad decision then that paid off for him. Take a not on this guy and hope to find him at the tables again.

Hi KKN,

I think the 3b sizing is good... I wouldn't mind a bit more even, up to .50c, as we'll have to play out of position post flop and if the original raiser calls, it will tempt over-calls behind him.

I definitely like the continuation bet. The pot already has $1 in it and we only have $1.66 left. The board is super wet, so I would expect we can get action from many worse hands (as well as better ones of course, basically sets). Should easily be +EV to bet/call the flop here. No problem with the sizing.
