      Hello acceleration123,

      Preflop: Even 3betting here is somewhat close, although it depends on the opponent. If he is somewhat opening a lot of hands then definitely it's doable.

      As played
      Postflop: I might even say that while it's 3bet pot I might even just Check it behind on turn and skip the thin value. Although as played don't really think that we beat there anyways anything when he ship the river. Usually is the line of nuts which just avoid you to Checking behind.

      Best regards.

      In late position I´d be more inclined to flat it, but I didn´t really wanted to let the hand go and neither play it in multiway pot - if I´d just call it - there are still lot of players behind me to join the hand with good odds.

      Yep, I did understand that. :) Just depending on the opponents behind you. If you have stations behind you then likely it's fine and even better. And as well against some squeezers you could consider Calling as well.
