      Hum hum. I think it is definately an OK squeeze-spot preflop with a rather loose open raiser and a loose passive cold caller (pretty much the ideal spot for a squeeze). However, not doing it on nl10 is ok, then calling is also OK although you need to play it oop.

      Flop: SB donks into you. SB looks like the guy who wouldn't donk potsize into you without a hand. You obviously don't get the odds to call here really, but I think this guy is going to pay you off enough to give you the odds (implied). So call is fine.
      The other option is to raise here with your overcard+FD. I don't like that though since you only have 1 OC and probably not much fold-equity since he donks so strong.

      Turn: Okay he checks to you. Now, I understand that you saw this as weakness and pounced on it immedliatly, but let's think about this. If this was the PFR in a HU pot, then this bet (also called a float) is standard! However, we're in a raised multiway pot to the flop where a pf CCer donked potsize. We have to give him credit for having a hand. With this line of thought we come to the conclusion that he will not fold on the turn! That's why taking a freecard is better here with your flushdraw.

      River: Sweet, you hit the ace! I think a valuebet is in order here to get value from a king. $2 is kinda OK for thin value vs a king, but I'd probably bet a liiittle higher anyway, something like $2.5
