      open CO 30%
      fold to 3bet 40%
      cbet flop 70%

      I prefered to call PF because I think my hand dominates their range and I really didn't want to get 4bet bluffed. Do you guys see a problem with the overflat PF?

      Post flop I think it's standard until river. I think my hand is pretty much faced up and I really have trouble seeing my opponent trying to take me off my hand, specially with that size.

      Preflop: Call is a huge mistake I think. Our hand sucks a lot being OOP 3way, our kicker is so weak and this hand is so tough to play without initiative.

      Squeezing here is good. This is one of those hands which play very poorly multiway, but is a good hand to 3bet bluff with since it has blockers. even if we get called, I think it's easy to play if we hit our pairs.

      Turn and River: I think i fold river. only thing you beat here is pure air and busted straight draws. no flush draws at all so I don't think you should call.

      What is your overcalling range pre flop (if you have one)?

      pocket pairs and suited Aces mostly, maybe some suited broadways (but i usually squeeze them too) and some higher suited connectors like T9s.

      In general I don't think you can call that wide here unless one of them is a huge fish. It's going to be tough to play them profitably.
