Stats nice for the day and ReSqueeze the Squeezer?

Granted, I only play to get my 200 pts a day which is about an hour a day (a little less yesterday).. but here are my stats from last night...

Hands: 521
VPIP: 14.9
PFR: 10.2
3bet: 7.1
WTSD: 21.5
W$SD: 64.3
AF: 2.86
bb/100: 39.60

Now, this was play a mix of 50PL, 100PL and 100NL; but I find it hard to find too much wrong with those stats. The really nice thing (or maybe bad thing) is that I didn't play a pot over 25bbs.

Here is a hand from the other day that I tried something different... Thoughts?

The Villain in this hand is a 22/16/1.8 guy over 1.5K hands. He DOES squeeze 3% and loves to play/steal in position as witnessed by his 65% steal rate. Now, he only 3bets 2.8% In other words, looks like a solid player who loves to play position.

MP1: $29.40
MP2: $77.95
Hero (CO): $50.00
BTN: $50.00
SB: $59.60
BB: $16.60
UTG: $80.50
UTG+1: $10.00
UTG+2: $28.50

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is CO with Qd Ad
3 folds, MP1 calls $0.50, MP2 raises to $2.25, Hero calls $2.25, BTN raises to $10.25, 4 folds, Hero raises to $34.25,

Anybody like the re squeeze here (if that is even the right terminology)? Raise size?

Have a nice day!!!

I don't think it's awful, since you'll probably get a fold a good enough % of the time to make it profitable. But I prefer the 4-bet as the original PFR, since you represent a stronger range than you do as the caller. 3-bettor will be able to put you on AQ/AK/JJ, but rarely anything better.

I'd much rather see you call with AQs and check-jam most flops.

If you want to play AQs for stacks, you feel that you're ahead of Villain's range, and you feel that Villain will call a shove pre-flop with worse hands, then I'd recommend simply 4-bet shoving pre-flop.

I do not understand this play at all. The guy raises with another limper already in, and you want to play for stacks with AQ. I don't like it. Calling, especially since you're sooted, I think is totally fine and standard, but the raise I think is -EV for you.

In my opinion, you can't let the squeezers do their thing.. you need to push back.

If I'm going to raise here, it should be more. Even though this was pot limit, I believe my raise could have been higher.

Normally, I would fold here being oop. I guess calling isn't terrible.

What happened? He pushed. I had to call and he flipped over AK. I do believe his range is a little wider. Oh well, live and learn.

I don't like "trapping" with AQs... I'd rather you take away his move by 3 betting yourself.
