      first, sorry for my english

      BTN is unknown 29/21 (15 hands)

      the squeeze size is a bit higher because SB is 63/6 and I wanted to extract the max value possible against him

      what should I do at river?
      I don't see hands who calls from behind but at the same time he could bluff if I check there because I'm pretty face up

      looks like he had JJ,
      Adxd, AQ would have call

      reviewing it I think its a check/fold, am I right?

      why not just bet 2.10 on flop and jam turn? due to the fact that your squeeze is bigger you can conceivably get it in with <psb on turn

      I think you misplayed the hand from a bet sizing point of view.

      Preflop: Would squeeze to 1.20 here

      Flop: Half pot is fine, 1.30$ into 2.70$

      Turn: Pot will have 5.30$, we can bet 2$ here, pot will have 9.30 on the River and we would have 5.50 left in stacks which is slightly more than half pot

      River: River is between c/c and c/f. I don't think there's value in a bet now, when stuff like AK/AJ/KJ are improved by this river card. We do beat busted flush draws though.

      Always try to plan for future streets ahead. In 3bet pots, the stack to pot ratio is significantly smaller, so your flop and turn and river bets should be closer to half pot, if not less. The same concept applies if you are against short stacks. When stack depth increases, you should size your bets larger.
