like what the **** universe is this where a 20/17 cant sqz/jam AK against a 16/14 at any level of poker? and i'm not even saying sqz/fold is wrong i'm just echoing how much truth there is in SA's assessment that one or both of you leak worse than my gf during first week of the month.
If you're not saying Sqz/fold is wrong, but you are suggesting its an easy jam, then how can both fold and jam be ok? Or if they are both equal EV then why all the hate for fold?
I'd like to know the villains range that all the small/mid stakes guys think makes it a jam. Is it because you think his 4b range is depolarised enough that there is enough TT+/AQ in there, or is it that you think his range is polarised with enough bluffs in it?
Personally ime at 50nl, although guys will adjust a little bit to a 20/17 player, it won't be in spots like this where it's effectively UTG+1 vs blinds because ranges for both villain and hero are at their strongest here. If its BTN vs BB then I agree we can squeeze/ jam all day long with AK here, but it's not.
At 50nl, I strongly agree with Mart that 5bet jamming here is going to see QQ+ an awful lot of the time.
