      Hello kaarols,

      Preflop: It's really up to the table dynamics in this spot. What kind of actions you have had earlier, what about his squeeze stat and stuff. Plus! The most important factor here is that he is squeezing into a short-stack as you see. His range is most likely even stronger, I might even be towards just calling and not isolating myself against very strong hands. While we don't even have that many hands or not information at all on him.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, obviously kinda sick spot while having an overcard on the board even. Although would he ship like that with Qx or any sets? :> Most likely he was even trapping you with overpair. Really difficult spot you put yourself into. But as I said I would play it differently preflop.

      Best Regards.
