      SB wins $14.67
      Hero wins $14.66

      Here on preflop i go for squeeze play, flop standard c-bet, turn is quite scary but i decide to get fancy and fire second barrel.
      I think that was bad play, but then river makes straight on the board and he insta shoves trying to rep. 99 / 33 / 910 910 i doubt he would call flop even unless they are diamonds

      Anyway i think until time bank at the very end and make the call. Thats what he wanted to put the pressure. I just wonder if this call makes sence. There was 6,43$ in the pot i had to call 7.54$ we spilt + pay rake.

      Hello RobertDaPro,

      Preflop: Depends a lot against what kind of opponents we are. While being so deep I don't like that much your squeeze.

      As played
      Postflop: I would most likely just Check behind the flop and definitely 2nd barreling is also kind of overplayed. You wont have much fold equity on the turn anyways which called on the flop. Meanwhile you still can decide what to do on the river with position. Plus exact your play avoids to make such hero-calls on river where he could easily have 9x hand what beats you. :)

      Best Regards.
