Another read less Zoom hand. Raising mp A8s and over called.

1) What do you think of the squeeze from the small blind?

I take the hit in position which was enough to get the pre caller to fold.

Squeezer makes a nice size c-bet. I had a gut feeling that they felt obligated after the squeeze play. Hmm, though thankfully gave up on the turn and we get to show down.

2) Do we give up on a turn barrel? I'd feel really beaten up then.

Hi ForrestFive,

Readless, I think our optimal decision so to actually fold preflop. They size it nicely large and we have another opponent behind us which will put us in a relatively tough spot post flop. So now we call and float flop with A high with no sort of good equity hoping to take it down with a turn bet when they check BUT we check back Ohuh!

by the way... I don't like villain's squeeze here. They have a suited and connected Ace that can play okay MW. I'd rather they'd call there.
