      hi

      care to explain your thoughts? in my opinion it was unnecessary to overbet the flop. you could just bet close to pot on every street.

      vs the turn raise i would usually fold cos you are either against a combodraw which you are a favourite against (70-75%) or a huge underdog (vs two pairs or better with only 10% equity). but given the way you played with so little money left behind you probably needed to call it off.

      thanks.

      He limped and I decided to squeeze. Given the way I played with the overbet on the flop, it looked more like a bluff, so he might be thinking that I'm bluffing. And it didn't looked to me like he had a 2 pair, more like a draw. Because he limped, he might also limped with a small pair, where I would've been an underdog.

      Why do you think this looks like a bluff? Against a fish, large bets = strong, small bets = weak

      I think he would play his two pairs and sets in the very same way. Against his Turn raising range you are not faring too well. However, since you already invested so much money with the flop overbet and huge turn bet, you are likely to be committed. If let's say you did bet 70% pot on both Flop and Turn and he did jam the Turn, you should probably have folded.

      In this case you were getting slightly more than 20% to call it off against the Turn jam so you cannot fold.
