      Hello alexgrapid,

      Preflop: The squeeze is considerable although on those levels it doesn't work that well since they are Calling you down very often and would be in ugly spot postflop while being as well in pretty big one. I wouldn't even be surprised when all the 3 guys would Call you. But overall, it's fine, our hand is pretty strong against their range.
      Postflop: I guess I'd just bet myself on turn to protect from 1card flushdraw and as played I am as well going broke there. Not much you can do while we made such a squeeze.

      Best regards.
