      The BB is unknown ..I'm a little bit concerned about my turn play..Of course if I decide to call I should go all in but then I'm not so sure that I'm in great position there..

      Preflop I prefer stacking off here for 100bb against an unknown opponent.

      As played preflop, I think postflop is fine.

      We have TPTK so calling the flop is good.

      On the turn stacking off looks good as well. We have TPTK + nut FD so our hand is good enough to play for stacks here.

      Well you decided to call so you hit great flop.

      Then you decided to call flop and let him bet again. This is ok for me since i am not afraid of flushes here.

      On Turn i dont see much difference in shoving and calling because he has just 1,15 $ left. If he is bluffing and obv you win only if he bluffs it is maybe even better just to call turn and collect the rest of the money on river.

      The question is only what is he going to squeez? What we actually win? Does he squeeze with KQ+, JJ range. Can he do such a line with second pair?

      All in all i don't know if can fold anywhere in this hand so i guess you played it well.

      edit:@kymupa was of course again faster than me
