      Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo yeah.
      Horrible PF I know.

      It went like this:
      Xe's particularly loose on UTG for some reason, he also has (much) looser 4Bets and Calls against my 3Bets.
      So anyway I decide to squeeze (the other person had a high Ft3Bet), with the hope he folds, but he 4Bets.
      Instead of bluff shoving like I should have done (maybe) I called because of reasons.
      But luckily enough I get awesome flop.

      I don't see a reason for raising the flop and I let xem do xyr thing.
      On the turn I raise 'cos I'd have remained with 4 euros obviously (it probably would have looked even stronger xD ).

      Being BU against 2 players I think call preflop is strongly advised. 3betting should still be +EV but 89s is good enough to also call IP imo. As played, hard to say about preflop because if he 4bets wide he will be quite polarised so your best play is often to call with your equity hands but it makes for awkward postflop play. You can call pre if you think you can win it post when you both miss plus you get paid of when he has a hand and you hit. The latter is usually not a problem.
