    really bad hand to squeeze with at a limit where a lot of players can call this, meaning ur hands playability counts esp OOP as we will be post flop. A2o does nto have strong playability here esp with these guys that can call with a lot of aces.

    Also stnd sq size is 4x-4x+1-2bbs if 100bbs starting stacks or thereabouts, but looks like ur shorter then a buy in here so even worse to sq cuz people get a better price to reshove.

    As played the cbet is good

    Well, in this situation I am treating this as light iso of the 2nd player behind me... as he folds a lot to a cbet..

    Basicly a mixture of a standard squeeze + iso haha. Im doing this w/ an rag ace cos of the card elimination, less ace combos..

    This is a horrible play and totally unnecessary at this limit.

    Why not exploit the weaknesses of the opponents when picked up on them anyway ?

    What dzoo said, and the guy is opening 5x and theres a call behind and ur not even sitting there with a full stack, A2o never flops good and with ur raise size ur giving them odds to call with pretty much anything, or reship on you. Don't try to justify your play, just take the advice and try to avoid getting into spots like this in the future.

    You cannot easily assume I have not decided my multi-street plan before actually executing it. You simply cannot know that for sure.

    And again, I am not raising for value so that the hand can flop well.
    No one at the tables I play had shown propensity to reship often anyway.

    u mentioned A blocker (card elimination) but then said noone was reshipping anyways so as I said u have to worry about people calling u more. SO ur A blocker doesn't mean as much because they can call with tons of aces still (so not just the nutted hands that u block) and they call with a lot of PPs. Being shorter stacked u run out of room to maneuver so your doing a lot of one and out which won't be best for this limit.

    So its good ur thinking about spots but don't absue them at these levels and as I said people will CALL (not reship) here a ton at these levels so playability of ur hand counts. If they play raise or fold then blockers matter more and playability matters less.

    yeah, I specifically chose this spot, not at random, just saw some tight guy in the middle..

    anyway, isnt my cbet more threating in 3bet pot if it represents a bigger portion of my stack (i.e. when shallower).. in other words being/appearing to be a bit pot commited/having propensity to ship it right away.

    ... as opposed to the other case when my cbet represents a little portion of the stack, when the threat is that of a 2nd barrel.


    i mean can my point be valid, or the "other" case is always valid
