      I would recommend playing with a full 100bb stack so you can use proper full stack strategy, but I know it probably isn't possible at some 888poker NL2 tables.
      Considering you are playing only with 35bb stack I think your play is ok. But with a 100bb stack there would be no reason to squeeze pre and your flop bet would have been too big. The problem is that you will isolate yourself against stronger hands only. But this stack depth limits your options and it probably is all-in or fold at this point.

      With your stack is 3betting not ideal. I would most likely call for set value and fold on a big 3bet. As played you get only action of better if you shove into 2 players and I would check behind and her-evaluate the turn.

      On 888Poker you can only sit with 50bb most likely, but then you can better start with 50bb then with a 35bb stack.
