I definitely don't squeeze enough. Most of it is looking for the right situations. I had a trivial one tonight, and I nearly missed it.

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em $0.10/$0.25 - 9 players

Button: $29.88
SB: $27.35 (Hero)
BB: $32.39
UTG: $23.81
UTG+1: $52.41
MP: $26.45
MP2: $25.99
HJ: $49.44
CO: $25.31

Preflop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with (9 players)
3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.75, 2 folds, Button calls $0.75,

I was all set to fold my crappy one gapper in the small blind, but for some reason I took a glance at the original raiser's stats, and one stat jumped out at me.

fold to 3bet: 90%.

Ninety percent! I looked it over again. I've got 1400 hands on him, so it's not a small sample fluke. I checked his opening raise percent - he was 13% from middle position, and he's folding everything to 3bets except the top 1.3% or so. That's JJ+, not even ace-king!

Then I checked out the cold caller. You don't want to squeenze 45/2 fish, they'll just cold call your squeeze and put you in a big hole. This guy was a 20/10 - on the fishy side, but looked like he knew how to fold.

The situation was perfect for a squeeze.

Hero raises to $3.50
, 3 folds

Hero won $2.50
(Rake: $0)
