      Preflop, i`m not really happy about the call, but i think this hand is too strong to turn it into a bluff preflop?

      I`m not sure about postflop. I don`t think i can raise or fold on any street?

      Preflop: Not going to say calling is a huge mistake. It may even be the best play. But vs stronger opponents it's hard to have a balanced calling range here (we are forced to defend a really narrow range in the SB so this makes our hand range really well-defined and easy to play against vs a tough opponent) so I think 3betting or folding your entire range in the SB could be a reasonable strategy.

      Postflop: call call call. Nothing else you can do
