When a player raises, a second calls and a third re-raises to squeeze the others out of the pot. Pressure is placed on the original raiser, because he either has to call or raise with 2 players left to act. If he folds, the second player either has to call or raise against the third player who showed a lot of strength.


MP1 raised and the BTN called. I guessed the BTN did not have a monster hand, as he just called. I was in the BB and did not want to play my TT against 2 opponents out of position, so I tried a squeeze play and 3bet.
