      Hello Sikac,

      Preflop: I'd rather squeeze here than play with such a hand in multiway pot. You may face even some more callers here which we don't want to see.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, exactly that may even happen that you are in multiway pot and trying to overplay your TP type of hand. Of course you have a flush-draw in it but there ain't gonna be a lot worse hands which will pay you. :) But most likely your play ain't wrong here, I'd myself bet even bigger on turn.

      Best Regards.

      For me, against a loose raiser, just reraise here with your value range and blockers imo. Some thing like 88+, AJs+, AQo+, KQ are fine at these stakes I think. If you think the raiser is opening wider from the position, then you could even expand your value range a bit. Basically squeeze with hands that you wouldn't like to be in a multiway pot with. Most of the time, you would just win the pot, else you would be more likely to play in a heads-up pot against a looser range.

      Well, most likely broadways which have blockers. Might even do that with something like TT+ but that as well depends on the villains. Against some it's even better to just flat and play as overpair+set value.
