This is a discussion on $11 NLHE MTT: Squeeze with AK -shove correct? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; Simple one probably.... almost 9BB in the pot, pushed30 big blinds. Is this a shove, or should I be making a smaller raise?
I don't really think we want to be having a 3B range here. We got 30bb and are OOP, meaning a squeeze vs 2 callers puts in around 1/3rd of our stack, while if we get our jam through we already pick up 10bb. Pretty sure a call or jam only strat is preferred then (though depending on the Villains this could be a profitable exploit 3B bluff, could be balanced with some AA).

Easy jam. You are not deep enough to have a 3-bet then fold to 4-bet range, when there are two field callers. Its different, if you are only facing UTG. Then I would 3-bet to near 4x his open and call off a jam.
